Welcome to Compton Place
Table of Contents
Compton Place (Saxon..Plasce..marshy ground) lies behind the Tudor Wall and gate on the pathway to Compton Lock (footpath 23).
It is a site of archaeological significance with the remains of a Norman moated encampment and site of a Tudor Manor House and formal garden.
The Parish Council, with help from the Hampshire Gardens Trust and Hampshire County Council, have erected an information board by the Tudor Gate.
We are grateful to Janet Hurrell and the Hampshire Gardens Trust for sponsoring this feature board.
