Memories of Farnborough - Farnborough Place manor house lodges - potted history

These two entrance lodges to Farnborough Manor House were believed to have been constructed in the early 18th Century. They were occupied by estate workers like the gatekeeper, groomsmen and in particular in the 1860s by the gardeners. After lying derelict for a number of years, they were demolished in 1924. The gates opened out on to a well gravelled driveway which led along an avenue of trees up the hill to the Manor House. The villagers attending St Peterís Church within the grounds were not allowed through the main entrance but had to use the footpath leading from Rectory Road, formerly Dog Kennel Lane.
