TQ8249 : Tower House, East Sutton

taken 12 years ago, near to Warmlake, Kent, Great Britain

Tower House, East Sutton
Tower House, East Sutton
Marked on the 1875 and 1940s maps and on its own gate as Tower House (for obvious reasons) but on current maps as Pleasure House, standing on Pleasure House Road near the western edge of the square, this building was the home of Mrs Keppel, mistress of King Edward VII.
An anonymous site visitor tells me, "As old owners of Pleasure House, my late husband and I renamed it. ... It had been the dower house for East Sutton Park and rented until it was purchased from the estate for about 2000 in the 1950s."
