Acid House, Frith Park, Surrey

The Frith Park estate, which lies to the south west of Walton-on-the-Hill and comprises of approximately 104 hectares of land nestled in the Surrey Hills. The site comprises Frith Park, a former 19th century locally listed manor house, together a number of post-war commercial buildings, four cottages, a former 16th century farmhouse and a group of agricultural buildings. The main house, together with the four cottages and the modern commercial buildings are grouped together in the western part of the site, whilst the former farmhouse and agricultural buildings are located in the eastern part of the site, closer to the motorway. There is a former walled garden which now lies in a state of disrepair.

The main house was previously occupied by the South Wales Chemical Company from the 1950s and has been used for manufacturing, storage and office accommodation.  The south wales chemical company were involved in the printing industry. The firm constructed the modern buildings found on the site sometime in the 1970s. The farm buildings were historically used for agricultural purposes but this use has fallen into decline.

The site has since been demolished and the area is being redeveloped for housing.
