Creech Grange near Wareham, Dorset
Creech Grange is an elegant country house, south of Wareham at the foot of the Purbeck Hills, built by Sir Oliver Lawrence, who acquired the land from the former Bindon Abbey, near Wool, after Henry VIII had abolished the monasteries in 1539. Only fragments remain of the original house built by Lawrence before his death in 1559, partly because it was damaged by fire by the Parliamentarians during the Civil War, and finally because in 1846 the entire front was taken down and rebuilt in the local Tudor style.
