    Description: Now sadly ruined but one of the foremost examples of the Greek Revival style in England. Remodelled after 1808. Still owned by the Baring family who became Lords Ashburton

    Comments: Neither of the sites meets all of Watson’s descriptions. The Grange is not half timbered but it is  on a hill, is imposing, has a lake and a bridge. Jonathan McCafferty in the Society’s Tri-metallic question “Where Thor art thou?” stated “One can only guess at its former appearance, complete with a fine stone finish and balustrades. This is undoubtedly the view,with lake and bridge, the house some half mile distant , which Holmes and Watson saw when walking with Sergeant Coventry. It is the formal carriage approach designed to impress in all its august splendour. The woodland stands to define the horizon. One can readily imagine the remains of Maria Pinto at the foot of the bridge and the pistol submerged in the depths amongst the reeds.”
