In 1898, the Russian Prince Alexis Dolgorouki married Frances Wilson, heiress of Fleetwood and commissioned Sir Edwin Lutyens to build Nashdom (Russian for 'our home'). In 1929 the ownership passed to a Benedictine Order who lived in and cared for Nashdom as an abbey for half a century until they left to merge with a larger monastery near Newbury. The mansion was converted in 1997 to luxury apartments.
