Hendred House is the manor house of Arches, so named after the family who owned it in the 14th century. It was originally owned in the mid 12th century by the Turbervilles, a branch of the famous Dorset family. Their descendants, the Eystons came into possession of the manor in the 1440s and they still live there. They are the oldest family in Berkshire to have remained in residence at the same property.
I love this pic Terry. It so reminds me of an old master - Dutch or Flemish I think - I'll have to look it up!
Great picture, there for the taking and well done for seeing it!
This is a Beautiful shot
I love this photo as well as the story behind the house.
