Slaugham Park

A hand-coloured view of Slaugham Park house from the gardens. The house is a grade II listed building where it is described as dating from the early 19th century. In the early 1800s it was occupied by William Hazlewood, Admiral Lord Nelson’s lawyer and one of his executors. From the end of the 1800s it was owned and occupied by the Secretan family until about 1937 when Miss Ethel Secretan moved to Phipps in Coos Lane. The Preston family then occupied the house until 1981 when Giles Pritchard-Gordon (1947-2011), his wife, Veronica, and their family moved in.

Slaugham Park
I used to live here when my mother was a housekeeper to the Prestons.
I have many happy memories as a young man wandering the woods especially the bluebell wood, as we called it, opposite the gate.
Indeed, I have a wonderful photograph of my wife-to-be sat in the middle of a large patch of them.
