Notes NOTES: Corsham Court was originally built as an Elizabethan mansion in 1582 but was later remodelled by Capability Brown and John Nash in the 18th century. Thomas Bellamy was commissioned to undertake restoration and additions to Corsham Court (including the remodelling of the North Front) by Lord Methuen in 1846. The Grand Staircase shown here was his own work. This drawing was made between 1846 and 1850.
