Sandy Town Council Guided Walk - Sandye Place, Sandy
Date Added: 16/06/2016
Come and join us on a Guided Tour of the interior and the grounds of Sandye Place. This is now an Academy, but was formerly the manor house of Sandy Manor. The red brick mansion dates from the 1750’s, and we will see the remaining parts of the original medieval stone manor house. On this rare occasion we will be able to tour the interior of this Georgian house with its charming panelled rooms, together with the warren of servant’s rooms in the service wing and basements.
We will walk in the delightful grounds, which retain much of their charm as when they were a 35 acre landscaped wooded park. We will hear about the famous families who lived at Sandye Place and of the Sandy Show, once the largest one day horticultural show in the midlands and which started here in 1869.
The cost of the Walk is £5.50 per person and payment is required on booking. Please note that no refunds are available unless the Council cancels or changes the date of the walk.
