Designed by architect Sir John Sulman.
The 132-year-old mansion, was originally the home of William Garland Soper –
traditionally referred to as the town's founding father.
The 20-bedroom property served Marie Curie hospice for 47 years, until it was closed amid huge controversy
in 2009. Locals were unable to get the house listed so its future looks bleak. Very sad indeed.
(Picture below) The popular Edwardian game of croquet is being played on the immaculate lawns in summer 1906.
A tennis court is market out on the right in front of the conservatory. This postcard was indicating x ‘Auntie’, was
sent to South Africa where the Soper family had profitable business interests.
