The History of Ashridge
This History of Ashridge was written in 1949 by Capt. Henry Gordon, son of Henry Gordon of Manar. He was seriously injured at Mons in the Great War, losing an arm. In the 1930's he came to Ashridge, which is now a business college, but was then run as a political 'think tank'. He received the OBE for his work at Ashridge during the war years when Ashridge was used as a hospital. Henry Gordon loved books and possessed a huge personal library. Ashridge had a fascinating history, and in the post-war years Henry Gordon wrote 'This is Ashridge': a study of Ashridge through the centuries.
