The final owner L. Ron Hubbard the acclaimed author and founder of the Scientology religion, carried out much of his research into the mind and spirit of man at Saint Hill. In the impressive library at the manor his 560 published works can be seen. Mr Hubbard aquired the estate in 1959 establishing it as his family residence.
One of the unique features to be viewed at the manor is the delightful one hundred foot Monkey Mural, painted by Sir Winston Churchills nephew, John Spencer Churchill which took three months to paint and incorporates 145 monkeys of 20 different species. It includes a capuchin monkey portraying Winston Churchill as an artist.
Saint Hill Manor is set in 59 acres of landscaped gardens, woodland and lake. The Saint Hill College for Scientologists has been constructed on the estate and is known as Saint Hill Castle. Students from many countries attend the advanced graduate courses it offers.
Saint Hill Manor can be found off the A22 near East Grinstead in West Sussex.
