The seat is at the corner of SX9263 : Side road, Lincombes.

The Lincombe estate was built up in the mid nineteenth century. Cherry and Pevsner point out how "cunningly" the houses are laid out, set close to uppr roads for the service entrance, but approached from lower roads "up long leafy drives which give the illusion of much larger estates". The casual visitor to the older parts of the estate receives the impression of broad roads contouring steep slopes, old walls, mature trees, and occasional glimpses of Victorian villas.
