NOTES: This Elizabethan house became the property of Colonel James Grahame in 1688 after his career at Court in the service of King James II. He employed a young French gardener, Guillaume Beaumont, a pupil of Le Notre at Versailles, to plan a fashionable garden in 1689-1712. The garden has survived in its original design and the topiary is some of the oldest in the world.

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
