GREAT TANGLEY MANOR, BUILT WHEN ELIZABETH WAS QUEEN

GREAT TANGLEY MANOR, BUILT WHEN ELIZABETH WAS QUEEN

About a mile north-east of Wonersh, in Surrey, is a beautiful example of the moated, half-timber manor house of the sixteenth century. It bears the date 1582, the twenty-fourth year of the reign of Elizabeth. But behind the timbered gables are portions of a much earlier building. This property descended from one William de Brasse to Thomas Howard, first Earl of Surrey, about the time of the Battle of Bosworth. For many years a farmhouse, Great Tangley is now restored to its former glory of an old English country residence.
