I think this may well be Westwood House, Worcestershire. There is an engraving in Britannia Illustrata (1707) by Kip and Knyff which shows a house of the same distinctive shape,with two pavilions as in the photograph.See uploaded copy of the engraving.) The English Heritage entry gives information about the history of the house.

Thanks! We'll sort out this image and get it re-numbered to join the English sequence, update the catalogue and then post the corect data here. It'll take a bit longer than usual as we'll have to go back to the glass plate as well as the digital scan and catalogue entry. But great to get it sorted out, thanks for your help.



Yours, Katy

Thanks for advising me where it is otherwise I could have been scouring Wales for ever! I thought it unlikely in Wales.

My pleasure Class31, took me a while to remember (I knew it was Midlands beginning with a W!). It's still in private hands but flats I think. The gardens look magnificent in the photos on the website but not as good now.

This is a photo of an important Elizabethan House built about 1598 for the Pakington family. The house is surrounded by parkland dotted with large trees. One finds that today the dotted parkland trees have largely disappeared and from a map the parkland has been encroached upon by business and residential developments.

The scene in the photograph is worthy of preservation.

This one has beaten me on this occasion. Is this a Jacobean house?It is likely to be situated in the Border Counties or in the Vale of Glamorgan. Is the building still standing or has it been demolished. Lots of Questions. I shall return to this. Meanwhile it would be great if someone could identify this picture.
