A new lease of life for Clandon Park

Claremont and our Cloud hosting partner Timico are proud to have donated £1,000 to the National Trust’s appeal to restore Clandon House following 2015’s devastating fire. Jonathan Stuart, Claremont’s Managed Services Director, said:


“Claremont & Timico have delivered critical Oracle and Oracle E-Business Suite hosting and Managed Services to the National Trust for 5 years. Clandon House is local to our Guildford office and the fire’s damage was shocking. We wanted to give something back to the National Trust and support them and our local community.”

Clandon Park was built in the 1720s and was one of the country’s most complete examples of a grade I listed Palladian mansion. The interiors featured original stucco ceilings, marble fireplaces and a superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain and textiles. The house came into the National Trust’s care in 1956. A destructive fire broke out at Clandon Park on 29 April 2015. Everyone was evacuated from the building and there were no reports of injuries but the fire ravaged the building, damaging all but one room and effectively leaving the house a shell. Three centuries of cultural history and important Palladian interiors were lost in the blaze, although a proportion of the contents were saved through a well-rehearsed salvage operation. The National Trust has announced ambitious plans to rebuild Clandon Park, which will honour its rich history, but also create vibrant, modern spaces to breathe new life into the house. Claremont and Timico are very pleased to be able to support that project and help one of our long-standing Oracle Managed Service customers in this way.
