Byfleet Manor
Byfleet Manor
Byfleet Manor was originally a royal hunting lodge which was given by Edward II to Piers Gaveston, his reputed lover. It was rebuilt in 1619 by Anne of Denmark, wife of King James I at the house's last royal owner, but she died before it was finished. The massive front walls and gate piers date from that time. It was then rebuilt again in 1685 because it was reported to be in ruinous condition! This resulted in a much smaller building. It was restored in 1905 when it was again enlarged by adding asymmetrical wings.
