Guys Cliffe (the land in which the house stands) has been inhabited since Saxon times. It’s name comes from the infamous Guy of Warwick – who was a servant to the Earl of Warwick. When he retired Guy moved to this site in a hermitage (a place of religious seclusion). It was this story that led to the founding of a Chantry here in 1423.
After Henry VIII went ahead with the dissolution of monasteries in 1536 the land passed over to private hands. The mansion itself dates back to 1751, having been built by Samuel Greatheed, who was a wealthy West India merchant and a member of the Coventry Parliament during the late 1740’s to early 1760’s. The Chapel of St Mary in the site has been used by the Freemasons since 1955 and is still used by the Masons today.
Over the course of hundreds of years the house has had a variety of uses. During World War I it was used as a hospital, and in World War II it was the location of a school for children that had been evacuated. The estate was sold in parts in 1947 and in 1952 a pub and restaurant was established in the mill, being named the Saxon Mill. A nursery was opened in the kitchen garden, and the stables was used as a riding school. All of which are still being used as they was way back then. On the road that runs north of the mill stood a toll house, but this was taken down in the midd 20th century.
There were plans to convert the mansion in to a hotel but nothing ever materialised and the house was left to ruin. The house was purchased by Aldwyn Porter in 1955 and it was then when the chapel began its long standing relationship with the Freemasons. During filming of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, a fire broke out during a scene which then got seriously out of hand causing extensive damage to building. English Heritage now list this as a grade II listed.
