A HISTORY OFåÊMOSS WOOD Moss Wood was built in 1934 by William Bromley Mason, a Canadian bachelor who had been a tea planter in East Africa ÛÒ you can still see his initials WBM carved into the wall above the site of the original wood burner. William had the house designed and built on the theme of an East African tea plantation, and lived there until August 1949. The house was built Û÷upside downÛª with the living quarters upstairs ÛÒ and the servants downstairs. Our Canadian bachelor lived at Moss Wood throughout the Second World War, before the house was put up for auction on Thursday 14thåÊJuly 1949: the deeds show that it was then transferred to Mrs Isabella Crossfield on August 4th. Mrs Crossfield lived in the house with her husband Eric ÛÒ again, not much is known about them, although a member of the local church did suggest that Mr Crossfield was a diamond dealer from Manchester.
