Heckfield Place


Heckfield Place

Heckfield Place is an 18th-century Georgian country estate in Heckfield, Hampshire, England.

The original manor house was the home of Lord Eversley, Charles Shaw-Lefevre, the longest serving speaker of the House of Commons. Upon Lord Eversley's death in 1888, the estate was occupied by Colonel Horace Walpole and his family.

In the 1980s, Heckfield Place was purchased by the Thales Group, who greatly expanded it as a commercial conference and training centre. Until 2002, it was run as "Thales Commercial University". However, in that year, the estate was sold and is now run privately as a conference centre and wedding venue.
