Merstham House, Merstham, by Tom Edwards, circa 1908





An aerial photo of Merstham House, the seat of the Jolliffe family (Lord Hylton) until 1899. It was let until the 2nd World War, when it was occupied by the Canadian forces. It was pulled down in the 1950s and the M25 was built through the grounds in the late 1970s. Gatton Bottom can be seen curving along the top of the picture below the dovecote which still stands (following repairs in 1991). The old Rectory is mainly hidden behind the trees to the right.

    Can you please confirm that Merstham House was demolished in 1934?

This is an aerial picture from 1982 of the site of Merstham House looking East along Gatton Bottom to its junction with the A23 below St Katharine's - the house stood where the trees now stand between the lane and the motorway on the right of the picture.

    Just off the photogragh, top right, where the A23 crosses the M25, there used to be a large pond where we used to fish for frogs spawn.
