MANOR HOUSE - Lime Park benefited by a large manor house, a stables, market garden, wells, and electricity from a generating station in the grounds - that also sold power to the nearby village of Herstmonceux. One way of ensuring the preservation of the divided properties, is for them to be amalgamated, under the steerage of a Trust. Making this a conservation area, for future UNESCO consideration.

 

 

 

 

 

Martin de Roemer was the son of Charles de Roemer, the innovator who built the Generating Station in Lime Park C.1898. He was childhood friends with Margaret Pollard, the daughter of their chauffeur William Green.

 

By the time of his birth in 1923, the Generating Station in Lime Park had ceased producing electricity commercially. But he did inherit sufficient funds to set him on a path to stock broking in London, benefiting from a solid base of operations in Herstmonceux, where the manor house had plenty of rooms for country vacations, and where his mother lived until the 1950s.

 

As the Park was his playground during his formative years, he must have enjoyed exploring the interesting machinery contained in the large sheds, which Charles and Lady de Roemer may have considered unsafe for young children. We know that a large and heavy, collapsible iron security gate was installed across the main entrance sliding doors (still in existence), and that the wooden buildings were covered in corrugated iron at some time after the First World War, and after 1936, according to Ronald Saunders. Hence, the covering may not have been in anticipation of World War Two.

 

We do know that in preparation for World War Two, Charles, or his wife, built two bomb proof shelters. One in the Manor House cellar west wing, and one north of his electricity Generating Station, which was cut into a hillside. Charles was a military man, having built seaplanes for the RAF, who was keen on fortifications. But he apparently moved to Wimbledon with his wife Audrey (Margaret Lidell 1892 - 1967), with their four children: Benita Mary, Martin, Anthony and Boyce, according to Peggy Green.

 

Martin passed away in 1998 from bone cancer. We do not know if Martin, or any of his brothers, or sister, had any children.

UNIQUE INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY - Perhaps not the most attractive of buildings, as it has fallen into a state of disrepair. This is mainly because Wealden District Council have done all they can to deny the building a reasonable and beneficial use, to pay for restorations, up to 2022. The Parish Council have been working with the district council on this. That is why the most important historic asset in Herstmonceux does not have an income for maintenance and general repairs. Conversely, the site, including other buildings in the Park, may one day qualify for listing as a UNESCO world heritage site.
