Osney Grange is a Victorian Country House originally built by the Ely family of shot-gun cartridge fame. Later it passed to the Penrose family and was the childhood home of Sir Roland Penrose (1900-1984) the celebrated Surrealist painter. Later, towards the end of the twentieth century, the stable block and mews buildings were largely demolished to make way for a housing development on the site. Both the bell tower and a subsidiary dome were put to one side in the gardens of the main house. LASSCO acquired them prior to a recent sale of the property.
