Notes:
Great Tangley Manor was first mentioned in the Doomsday book in 1017. The main part of the house reflects alterations made in 1582. In 1880 the property was acquired by Wycham Flower. Flower commissioned noted Arts and Crafts style architect Phillip Speakman Webb to make additional changes and to design the moat and gardens. Additional renovations occurred in the late 20th century, including the internal division of the house into two separate dwellings. The gardens, however, have been largely preserved in their traditional design.
Persons associated with the property include: Wycham Flower (former owner, ca. 1880-1910) and Phillip Speakman Webb (architect and landscape designer, ca. 1880-1900).
