Originally one space comprising the house and grounds of Bentley Priory, a stately mansion built in 1775 with the distinguished and unorthodox Sir John Soane as architect, the two were separated when the house was occupied by the RAF and used as an operation centre during the Battle of Britain in the Second World War.
Visitors will find something to interest them here. Two hard surfaced paths are suitable for strollers and outdoor wheelchairs: the Deer Path, which runs north from Old Lodge way gate to Priory Drive gate, and the Weald Path that runs west to Weald gate. The grassy spaces and open glades adjacent to these paths afford many possibilites for picnics and sunbathing, while more adventurous visitors will see many uncommon plants and animals in the quieter areas. All that we ask of visitors is that you treat the site with respect – that includes not dropping litter, not picking flowers, not lighting fires, not damaging trees or fences, and keeping dogs under control.
