Voluntary Action South West Surrey


West Horsley Place Trust

Mission Statement

West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed mediaeval manor house and estate of great beauty and historic significance. The manor house dates from 1425, though there has been a building on site since Saxon times. Our recent work to conserve and maintain the house has made our principal rooms safe and comfortable for public access, but the house remains on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register.  

The West Horsley Place Trust aims to bring the house, gardens, 380-acre estate and eight Grade II listed outbuildings back into good repair and to improve people's wellbeing through art, culture, heritage & nature.

We will give people freedom to explore and discover, to create stories and become part of ours. 


  • To bring about a quiet revolution in the way an historic house and estate is managed
  • To be a place that improves people’s wellbeing through culture, heritage and nature


  • To be sustainable, financially, environmentally and socially
  • To be a catalyst for creativity
  • To conserve the listed buildings in our care so that they are no longer on the Historic England ‘at risk’ register
  • To provide learning and engagement opportunities in culture, heritage and nature
  • To broaden our audience by being welcoming, inclusive and accessible
  • To enhance the natural landscape through increasing biodiversity and habitat connectivity
