Bull Hill House, Bull Hill, in the 1930s

Bull Hill House, Bull Hill, in the 1930s /media/flashcomm?action=mediaview&context=normal&id=319

This photograph of Bull Hill House from the 1930s shows it with modern windows on the first floor and the part over the entrance which is surmounted by battlements filled in with modern windows and roofed over to form another storey. This storey was subsequently removed as is shown by the other photograph of Bull Hill House in the archive.

In 1923 the property was bought by John Rennie Manderson, great grandson of John Rennie, the famous civil engineer. Major Manderson, described on his death in the North Devon Journal in 1938 as, "an English gentleman of a type all too rare in these latter days" was a great lover of period architecture and painstakingly restored the house. It remained in the Manderson family until 1959 after which Malcolm and Beulah Corney bought the property and continued the sensitive restoration.
