In 1939 the estate was taken over by the BBC and quickly became one of the largest broadcasting studios in Europe.

  • Sophie - Feb 2018

    From the moment we met with Sandie and had a tour of the Wood Norton we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding reception. Sandie and the team were fantastic from start to finish and went the extra mile to deliver all our requests on our special day. The wedding planning process was seamless and they had a whole host of suppliers at hand where we didnt know where to turn. The food was fantastic and they really catered to our guests needs. They made sure that both us and our guests were happy on the day and kept things running smoothly at times that got a little crazy for us. I would recommend the Wood Norton Sandie and her team to anyone looking for a stress free wedding with exceptional food in a beautiful setting! Thank you to the whole team for making it such a perfect day!
