Nork House

This residence was built in 1740 by Sir Christopher Buckle.
In later years, it underwent considerable alteration when owned by the 6th and 7th Earl of Egmont and subsequently, Mr and Mrs Colman.
The picture was probably taken in the 1920s. Sadly there is nothing left of the property now except a mound of earth in Nork Park.

Nork House
During the war the Canadians used this magnificient building for Officers. Opposite was a deep well and the walled gardens where a local Police Officer kept chickens and pigs.
At the entrance to The Park, off of The Drive, on the right were several stables and a cobbled courtyard. Although the `camp` was ringed with barbed wire, they left a gap nearest to Tattenham Way so that easy access was made for the shops!!

Hello does anyone know how this building was destroyed, such a shame.

Note from LNW: Nork is not my speciality but my understanding is that when the estate was put up for sale no one came forward to purchase the property, so the whole estate was sold to developers.

Are there any other pictures of Nork House or architects drawing?

Note from LNW: Yes, there are several held by the Banstead History Centre. I don't think I have ever seen any plans but I will make a few enquiries.
