Heritage asset under threat from irreversible harm

The current 1975 Historic England Grade II Listing for Esher Place House solely describes its exterior with no internal appraisal and potentially opens the door for the historically significant interiors to be lost forever. Indeed, Historic England acknowledge that “lists of the 1970s … may contain houses which are under-graded … many houses were listed without the benefit of internal inspection which may reveal further claims to special interest.” (Domestic 3: Suburban and Country Houses, Page 22). Unquestionably, this applies to Esher Place House and this shortcoming must be immediately corrected before irreparable damage is done.

Esher Place House’s historical associations with Grade I Listed Wayneflete Tower, are inextricably woven and its current Grade II Listing is arguably inadequate and in need of upgrading. Indeed, the interiors need to be urgently studied and their provenance investigated.

An independent Heritage Consultant must be invited to the site and a full listing of all interior features must be made in order for this incredible building to be preserved for the future generations.
