- W. D. Caroe
William Douglas Caroe (1857–1938) was a British
architect, particularly of churches. His sons were the architect A. D. R. Caroe, and Sir Olaf Caroe.
The firm he founded, Caroe & Partners, still flourishes, specialising in
ecclesiastical architecture, especially the restoration of historic churches. His own country house, "Vann" in Surrey, was featured on the TV series " The Curious House Guest" in 2006. "Vann" is open on National Gardens Schemedays and by appointment.
