Denham Grove Denham was formerly known as Durdent Court/ Tile House. The Tile House estate is named on the Jeffery’s county map (1760s), with woodland to the north‐ east and to the south, but no structures depicted. Sheahan (1862) suggested that the name ‘Tile  House’ derives from a former “tile manufactory which stood on the spot as far back as three  centuries.” It is also possible that the several large holes or ponds on the estate originate as sources  of clay for he manufacture of tiles or pottery.

According to Lathbury (1904), Tile House was built in 1800 by Joseph Morten of the Savoy, Denham  on the site just north of a farmstead called Cherry Tree Farm. By 1810 three houses stood on the  site, with fields surrounding them (OSD, 1810).

After Morten died in 1818, the estate, which then contained two houses, was purchased c.1821 by  Andrew Mortimer Drummond, Esq. who demolished one of the two houses and put up a new house  alongside the remaining one (Lathbury). Sheahan (1862) however, says that when Drummond  purchased the estate in 1821, it consisted of a small house and about 30 acres. Bryant’s county map  (1825) shows two houses near the centre of the Tile House estate, one larger than the other. These  are directly north of farm buildings on Cherry Tree Farm.

In the 1843 (Denham Tithe Map), the estate was still owned by Andrew Mortimer Drummond, who  was a member of the prominent Drummond Bank family. He was married to the painter, Lady Emily  Drummond, the sister of Colonel Percy. The Drummond family continued in occupation for most of  the C19. Tile House in 1843 was surrounded by a garden plantation, a cottage, extensive gardens,  pleasure grounds, extensive grasslands and wood. The house faced east over the pleasure grounds,  park land, grasslands and a pond field looking across the Colne Valley.

By 1862 (Sheahan) Tile House was said to be “pleasantly situated about 2 ½ miles north from the  village of Denham. The house is chiefly of brick and is a neat residence.” Since Mr Drummond  purchased the place (c.1821), when it consisted of “a small house and about 30 acre”, he had ‘since  greatly added to the house, and also augmented the estate by several purchases, so that it now  consists of 568 acres.” (Sheahan)

By the 1870s (OS) the park and gardens surrounded a substantial house, including a walled kitchen  garden adjacent to the farm detached to the west across Tilehouse Lane, from the main entrance to  the Tile House.  This area was developed separately as Little Haylings in the 1920s (qv). The Sales  Particulars from the 1884 Auction catalogue (ASP) described the estate as a freehold residential  property, known as “The Tile House”, consisting of 82 acres with offices, gardens, park, arable and  wood land, and “placed in a situation of much beauty, being on a sheltered depression of the hills  which enclose the valley of the Colne.”

In 1908, Tile House was owned by Captain C E Wyld, who retired from the Coldstream Guards in  1903. Following a fire in the 1950s, Tile House was demolished. The Tile House site  was in the late C20 redeveloped as an hotel and facilities for meetings, conferences, training and  events called Durdent Court which has since been renamed Denham Grove.
