The History of Ponsbourne Park
Ponsbourne Park was part of the Hatfield estates of the Bishop of Ely during the12th century. During the15thCentury ,many of the large estates in England came into the crown following the Dissolution. This particular estate was different, given that it had already been sold to Sir John Fortescue. He was responsible for building the original stately and large mansion in the valley.
The Manor was sold to Lawrence Sullivan esq. In the18th century, who proceeded to demolish and build the current mansion in a slightly different location.
After the Second World War it became St Dominic's Priory School. Since then the manor has been transformed into a grand hotel.
