Former site of the palace or manor, which was of Late Saxon origin. It was a retreat of Edward the Confessor, then a hunting seat.

It was abandoned in 1620, and was described as ruinous during the Commonwealth. It was a favourite residence of the royal consorts, the Queen's residence being known as the Bower.
