Nice work Class31, you are dead right with this one. It was lived in by the Drummond family, of the banking fame, for a time (see below).



From the History and Topography of Buckinghamshire by JJ Sheahan.



"The Fishery, half a mile from Denham, belongs to St. Thomas's Hospital, is leaded to Andrew Mortimer Drummond, Esq., and is in the occuptation of Henry Jones, Esq., who has very much improved the place. The river Colne runs close to the house.



The Fishery estate consists of the house, about 161 acres of land, and the fishery of Colne. John Drummond, Esq., (uncle of the present lessee) who obtained a lease of the property in 1800, enlarged the house, and lived in it until his death in 1833. It was afterwards occupied by this gentleman's son and grandson. The fishing in Colne was formerly excellent, but the canal running into the river in various places has greatly diminished it".

Hi Class31, thanks for spotting this - it's nice to get more coverage of Denham given its important British film industry history. We'll update the catalogue and post the new data here in due course.



Yours, Katy

View looking north over an area which will largely be destroyed by gravel workings.

This is definately not in Knapton, York, which we know very well. We think it is Lincolnshire and are working on its actual location - it may even be the hall taken over as The Officers Mess at Woodhall Spa airfield famously known for the Dambuster's Squadron.

Victorian/Edwardian. Perhaps something on the upper reaches of the Thames?
