Lovelace Mausoleum

St Martin's Church Yard, Ockham Road South, East Horsley, Guildford, Surrey, KT24 6RL

Grade II listed building, built by the 1st Earl of Lovelace at the end of the 19th century, in the unique Lovelace architectural style that dominates East Horsley, a combination of flint, with moulded red, white and black terracotta brickwork. The interior comprises a tall and airy vault with a fine groined brick dome, similar to that found in the chapel of the nearby Horsley Towers. Stone stairs lead down to the historic sepulchre containing the tombs of the Earl, interred in 1893 and his second wife Jane who died in 1908. Fully restored to its original splendour by expert craftsmen and stands proud of its place in local heritage.

This event took place in September 2016 and the entry is now archived.
