Surrenden House
(formerly listed as
Surrenden Dering)
TQ 9345 27/11 14.2.67.
C18. The former service or north wing of Surrenden Dering. The main portion
of the mansion was built by Sir Edward Dering, First Baronet (1598-1644),
in the reign of Charles I. It was sold in 1920 and became a school. A serious
fire occurred in 1952 which destroyed most of the building, and the remains
were demolished in 1953, except for this part. This was added by Sir Edward
Dering, 5th Baronet (died 1762), in matching style to the C17 portion. 2
storeys red brick. Tiled roof with parapet and shaped Dutch gable ends east
and west. Eight Dering windows with brick cambered head linings above the
round-headed lights, with keyblocks at the angles and the centre of the heads.
Three doorcases with elliptical heads and elliptical fanlights of 4 lights.
This estate was not sold between the Norman Conquest and 1928 and was owned
by the Dering family from the mid Cl5 until 1928.
