History of Chamberhouse Castle in Greenham in the Royal County of Berkshire
by David Nash Ford


Little Known Fortified Manor

Chamberhouse Farm on Crookham Common, though lately occupied by the Tull family whose monuments can be seen in the parish church, was originally the site of a late medieval castle or fortified manor house. In 1446, John Pury, the Lord of the Manor of Chamberhouse, obtained Royal permission to crenellate his home and empark 300 acres surrounding it. Sadly the deer and their park only lasted about a hundred years, and the same may be true of the castle.
