Facing the beach at Walmer, Walmer Place was built in 1901 for a Dutchman, Albert Oochs, as a luxurious manor house set in 16 acres. It was bought at auction in 1909 by Agnes Marke Wood, widow of wealthy shipping merchant and banker James Marke Wood. It would be Mrs Marke Wood's principal residence until her death in 1927 when it was inherited by her daughter Rosamond. Both women appear to have spent many happy years in Walmer. They were extremely wealthy and generous in their support of local causes and amenities. The manor house set in 16 acres fell into disrepair after the second World War and was put on the market in 1958.It was sold in 1965 and the main buildings and gardens of Walmer Place demolished and replaced by today's apartment blocks.
