WANSTEAD HOUSE

DESCRIPTION + /

Country house constructed 1715-1722 by Colin Campbell for Sir Richard Child - demolished circa 1824. This was built on the site of a Medieval manor house which was rebuilt circa 1550 and enlarged circa 1577 (TQ48NW83). The site of Wanstead House was marked by a trench, 2.5 metres deep, measuring some 150 metres north-south by 30 metres east-west. Footings of perron staircases standing to a height of 0.20 metres, appear to be the only section of the fabric of the main house to survive. The site was surveyed by RCHME field staff in 1989-90.
