A Lit­tle History

The Moat House at Slaugh­am Place has been the res­i­dence of Lady Urwick. It was acquired by her late hus­band, Sir Alan Urwick, in 1976. After serv­ing with dis­tinc­tion for 37 years in MI6 and the For­eign Office, Sir Alan was called upon by the Hous­es of Par­lia­ment to assume the role of Ser­jeant at Arms until his retirement.

Upon relo­cat­ing to Slaugh­am, they encoun­tered ruins and gar­dens in a state of severe dis­re­pair. Over the course of approx­i­mate­ly four decades, they ded­i­cat­ed them­selves to the exten­sive restora­tion of the ruins and the gar­den, with invalu­able assis­tance from Arthur Shop­land from the vil­lage. These efforts stand as a tes­ta­ment to Sir Alan’s dual pas­sions: his­to­ry and gardening.

Today, the fam­i­ly con­tin­ues to over­see the man­age­ment of the wed­ding venue while dili­gent­ly main­tain­ing and enhanc­ing the grounds.
