And, would you believe it – another question!

Unknown Camberley House

 

Does anyone recognise this house?  The illustration comes from an architectural journal, so it may not have ever been built……..

  1. I want to thank you for sending the photos of Beaufront ….I spent the years from 1958 thru 1962 there…my sister also was there..I was wondering when the photo of the school was taken…I do not remember there being a conservatory and we certainly did not have use of a chapel…every Sunday we all had to get dressed up and walk to church…would love to know anything else you have on the school.. After the first few weeks there, I absolutely loved my time there, and made friends for life, although we all travelled far and wide.

    • Caroline, thank you for your comment. I do have a few other oddments about the school, but only a few dates, which I will publish as soon as I can. The photo is probably pre-WW 2. Was there a butler and a school nurse in your time? I read a memoir (now given to the museum) which mentioned both these……

      • I don’t think so, both of the Headmistesses were both there, and the school actually closed when one of them died, I cannot remember which one, I had already left. I always understood that the house had been built has a summer residence for the Spanish Ambassador, but not sure if that was correct.

        Even as a school it was wonderful, all the bedrooms were named after great artists and the bathrooms were HUGE…although it was pretty sparce in comfort….it was a great place to learn
