Buxlow Manor, near Saxmundham

| Buxlow Manor

We are very grateful to Guy de Moubray for agreeing to this visit. Buxlow Manor was built in 1678 to an Elizabethan E plan. Of attractive brick structure, the house has Dutch gables and other interesting features (Pevsner and Sandon refer to the house as Red House Farm, Knodishall). Guy has researched the origins of the house and its owners, and is an enthusiastic planter of trees and shrub roses.

There are interesting memorabilia of Nelson and naval history, as well as curiosities collected during his travels for the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of England. Guy will tell of his researches and discoveries, how he developed a flair for cooking and started publishing books of recipes in his eighties while he shows us the interior and outside of the house and his plantings and developments in the five acres of gardens. This will be followed by wines and canapés.
