PATCHING THE LONG FURLONG

The Ruins of Michelgrove

II

Michelgrove was one of the largest and most famous houses in the County and was the home of the Shelley family from the late C15 to 1800. It was probably built about 1540 by Sir William Shelley, Justice of the Common Pleas, but was altered and enlarged by Sir John Shelley in the C18 and by Richard Walker of Liverpool between 1800 and 1828. In 1828 it was purchased by the 12th Duke of Norfolk and soon afterwards demolished by him. The magnificent staircase inserted by Richard Walker is said to have been moved to Burton Park, Petworth Rural District (q.v.) which was rebuilt at that period. The only remains of the house on the spot consist of a castellated wall built of red brick faced with Roman cement with 3 blocked 4-centred archways with dripstones over and at the north end a squat octagonal turret with castellated parapet. This is all probably part of one of the 1s. flanking wings or pavilions added or altered at the time of the C18 or early C19 alterations to the house.
