What do we make of this place, haunted apparently by the ghost of Sir Thomas More?
Where is it now? Burnt to the ground in the 1980s, it seems. But the walled gardens, cottages, bell-tower, gatehouse and lodges survive (albeit horribly neglected). And the location. And the deer (although not, I fear, the cranes after which Cranleigh was named).
Is it possible that an environmentally friendly community-oriented newbuild could do justice to the setting of Henry VIII’s former hunting lodge? Of course it could! what an idea….
