Bourn Hall was originally an Elizabethan manor house built on the site of an earlier 11th century castle. In 1607 it became the seat of the Earl de la Warr, descendant of William the Conqueror, who carried out modernisation of the old house. When Buckler visited in 1818, the park and grounds had been newly landscaped by father and son architects Humphrey and John Repton. The house is now a medical clinic.
