How Nymans house was built 

The medieval style manor is not as old as it seems. Before the Messel family bought Nymans it was a plain Regency style house, built around 1839 by George Harrington.

Ash dieback at Nymans 

Many of the ash trees at Nymans are unfortunately suffering from ash dieback. Over the coming months we’ll be felling affected trees where they could impact on our visitor’s safety. Work is likely to begin the week beginning 8 November and will continue through February.
