When he discovered that he was descended from a Norman aristocrat, Dru or Drogo, who lived in the 12C, the rich grocer Julius Drewe had Edwin Lutyens create an extraordinary castle in his name. The castle was built 1911-1930 from granite taken from Drewe quarry. The exterior is inspired by romanesque and Tudor styles, and the interior is pure Lutyens (with some fine oak objects).
