Sayes Court Lodge

Sayes Court Lodge
Avenue of lime trees
This was probably here in 1772 and became the entrance lodge to Jacobean style Sayes Court, reached by an avenue of lime trees (still visible). Walter de Saye owned land south of the Thames in 1276; among later occupiers were Sir Bartholemew Reed (Lord Mayor of London), Sir Richard Weston (whose family constructed the Wey Navigation) and James Paine (architect of Chertsey Bridge). The last owners of the house, the Rastricks, allowed it to decay till its demolition in 1928.
