Tucked away in the heart of Lower Green is a Grade II Historic England listed building, it is a two story timber framed cottage, this building is in need of urgent restoration. It is owned by Surrey Country Council and our community deserves this treasure restored and cherished.
Richard Williams has a detailed article on the building which can be read on the Esher Residents website.
There is also a detailed description of the building on the Exploring Surreys Past website stating that the history goes back to 1005, when it was known as “Bulanweorthe” and later ” Buleworth”. The building has also been known as “Wicker’s”, “Standers farm” and “The Grove”.
