Hob Uid: 236440
Location :
Hampshire
Basingstoke and Deane
Baughurst
Grid Ref : SU5537358522
Summary : Georgian house probably on the site of a 12th century Manor House. Associated deer park and Park Pale.
More information : Manor of Wolverton. (Descent of the Manor traced from Domesday.) The Park was extant in the 12th century. (1)

(SU 55365852) "Wolverton House is a Georgian Mansion,traditionally on the site of an older manor house; it is now usually known as Wolverton Park but I wish the name Wolverton House to be retained on O.S. maps. (2)

No trace of a house older than the present one seen. Wolverton Park is centred at SU 56005890, and the park pale can be traced throughout its length. It encloses an elongated area, just over a mile long and about one-third of a mile wide, between the roads to Heath End and Banghurst. It is well preserved at the S. end but elsewhere it is incorporated in Woodland boundary banks. In their present state the Fish Pond' and 'Spicer's Pond' to the West of the park, do not appear to be ancient. (3)

No change. Park Pale surveyed at 1/2500. (4)

Wolverton House, Wolverton Park. Grade II*. C18, early C19. A severely-plain classical house of symmetrical form, 2 storeys and cellar (exposed as 3 storeys in the lower service part at the south side): the older cental block has windows of the later date. (For
full description see list). (5)

Additional bibliography. (6-7)

Wolverton was a royal demesne manor until alienated by King John in 1215. There was a royal residence and deeer park here in the reign of Henry II. (8)
