Voysey and The Dig

Posted on

Those who have seen the trailer for the new Netflix film The Dig will have spotted that there is a third celebrity performer in addition to the two ‘above-the-title’ film stars. That is Norney Grange, the house near Shackleford in Surrey that was designed by C.F.A. Voysey for the Rev. Leighton Crane in 1897. Twenty-five years ago, when Ralph Fiennes was first achieving acclaim for his role in Quiz Show, Norney Grange drew attention when it stood in for Ham Spray, the Berkshire home of the writer Lytton Strachey in Christopher Hampton’s film Carrington and the setting for its dramatic denouement.
