In The Old House

The Old House is truly an old house. Parts of it date from around 1270 although much has been altered and extended since then.

Photographs of the interior are almost as rare as hens’ teeth. Here is one of poor quality but good enough to give an idea.

This photo shows Miss Anne Pleydell Bouverie sitting in a chair in a drawing room at the house. We can see portraits, pots and plates, books and elegant furniture. And in the middle, Anne is relaxing on a comfortable looking chair.

Anne was born in about 1844 in London. Her family were Lords of the Manor in Market Lavington. She remained a spinster and led an increasingly reclusive life at The Old House. She died in 1940 at the age of 96.
