Keston Park was the brainchild of property developer Frederick Rogers who acquired the land in 1923 from the Earl of Derby. His travels had taken him to America where he had been inspired by houses in beautiful parkland settings so he set about recreating this with Keston Park. It remains one of the most exclusive private estates in the South East and is privately gated at all entrances.
