HISTORY

"Seagar House" forms part of the site of an original 16th Century Coaching Inn, first recorded as "The Swann Inn" in 1530 under the reign of Elizabeth I. It is believed that Charles I was led through the Old Town back to London under arrest by the parliamentarian soldiers during the Civil War years. The famous diarist, Samuel Pepys, recorded a journey through Stevenage on 5 August 1664 and again in 1667, staying at "The Swann Inn" and playing bowls on the Green opposite. More recently, "The Swann Inn" was renamed "The Grange" in the 1840's by Reverend John Osborne Seager who converted the buildings into a boys school. Of late, "The Grange" was used as council offices incorporating the Town's Registry Office. "The Grange" comprises a group of Grade II and Grade II* Listed Buildings arranged around an attractive courtyard. The buildings are a mix of styles including Tudor oak frames, fine Tudor brickwork and Georgian facades with large sash windows. The buildings were successfully converted into eight townhouses and six apartments by City and Country in 1999 and the winner of the Bronze Award for "Best Renovation" at the "What House" Awards in the year 2000.
