History of Buckland Manor

Buckland Manor is an imposing detached dwelling located within an extensive curtilage, which includes formal and kitchen garden areas and a woodland garden. 

The house has a core that dates from the late 16th or early 17th century and was a brick building with gables and large end chimney stacks. The main Georgian façade, facing east, was added in the 18th century and there are later 18th, 19th and early 20th century extensions to the rear.

The façade is brick, with six over six pane timber vertical sash windows and has a large central door with Tuscan pillars to either side, supporting a flat roofed porch.

The roofs are all clay plain tiles, with the exception of the 19th century bay on the south front, which has fish-scale tiles on a conical roof.

The southern garden façade is of painted brick, with some tile hanging, and a central imposing late 19th century bracketed oriel bay window at first floor window. The majority of the original timber sash windows survive on this elevation.

the conservatory

When the entrepreneur John Howlett (1883 – 1976) came to Lymington as a motor mechanic in 1912 no-one could have guessed what an impact he was to have on the town.

He joined South Coast Garages and eventually was able to take over the business and in 1919 he founded Wellworthy Piston Rings Ltd, a firm that became a major player in the automotive industry and employed thousands!

As his wealth grew so did his aspirations, so much so that he became a councillor and then mayor of the Borough of Lymington.

Howlett had the stunning Amdega conservatory dismantled from his original home at Buckland Manor and moved over the road to his new residence and installed there at one point. On discovering he couldn’t settle in the new location, Howlett returned to the Manor House and took the conservatory back with him!
