Huntsmoor Park
Still looking like a country estate despite being next to the M25.
The following extract is lifted from British History Online for Iver Parish.
"An old house in Iver called HUNTSMOOR PARK, or Lodge, was held by Richard Booth, and left by him at his death in 1629 to Sir George Booth, bart., for a sum of 2,000. (fn. 140) As he refused to pay, the executors sold it to Robert Bowyer, younger son of Sir William Bowyer of Denham. (fn. 141) His eldest son William dying unmarried, Huntsmoor passed to the second son Robert, who in 1696 sold it to Christopher Tower, (fn. 142) and he and his descendants made it their residence. Three years later Christopher Tower purchased Cornwalls Manor (q.v.), with which Huntsmoor has descended to the present day. Free fishing is mentioned as attached to Cornwalls Manor during the 17th (fn. 143) and 18th (fn. 144) centuries."
There is some debate as to whether this is the "Huntsmore" to which Samuel Pepys rode on 12th March 1659.
