Built / Designed For: Blanck family
House & Family History: The Manor of Long Crendon was given to Sir Walter Giffard, Lord of Longueville, by William the Conqueror for services at the Battle of Hastings (there is some evidence that Sir Walter and his son killed Harold, the last Anglo-Saxon king of England). Today's Long Crendon Manor is the result of many centuries of alterations and additions.
Garden & Outbuildings: A brick Granary, circa 1725, is extant. The original farmyard was converted into a garden, 1967-68, by Robert Adam, who also designed the hipped roof Gazebo for Lord Carrington.
