The Deepdene Dorking by Doris Mercer and Alan A. Jackson
There has been a house in this location from 1400, but the period that most people know the name Deepdene from is the Hope era (1808 - 1912).
Thomas Hope bought the house in 1808 and furnished it to rival his already famous Duchess Street House. After his death in 1831, the house left to his son Henry Thomas Hope who added to the house and the land. From here the house passed to the 6th Duke of Newcastle who let the great house lapse into a steady decline.
Its subsequent reincarnations as hotel and headquarters of Southern Railways during the Second World War added to the houses demise and it was eventually demolished in 1969.
