Compton Place

Compton Place, Shawford

Compton Place, Shawford, is a site of historical significance where a medieval moated house and chapel once stood, with later a Tudor manor house and formal garden. All that is now to be seen is a large indented shape which is thought to have been the moat, and a short stretch of the Tudor wall and arch. The owner of the site, Hampshire County Council recently cleared the growth from the structure, and Compton and Shawford Parish Council with the help of Hampshire Gardens Trust has designed and erected an Information Board which is now in place by the Tudor gate. The site lies on the path walkers must have passed for years unaware of what lay beyond the wall.
We hope that now they will stop, read and be amazed!
