taken 9 years ago, near to Merstham, Surrey, Great Britain

Gatton Hall and Church
Gatton Hall and Church
Gatton Hall was originally built by the Fifth Baron Monson between 1830 and 1841. It was later extended in 1891 by Sir Jeremiah Colman (of mustard fame, who had bought the estate in 1888), who added a large Corinthian portico on the north side. However, the house was largely destroyed by fire in 1934 with only the portico surviving. The current building is a neo-Georgian rebuild.

Since 1948 it has formed part of the Royal Alexandra & Albert School, a voluntary aided boarding and day school.

The building is grade II listed (primarily for the portico, not seen here) - for listing particulars see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .

In the background on the right is the spire of St Andrew's Church - see TQ2752 : St Andrew's Church, Gatton.
