Notes NOTES: This was a 16th century house which was largely rebuilt in 1843-1844. It was demolished in 1960. This print probably dates from 1844 or 1845 because the Earl of Mountnorris, the client, died soon after work was finished in 1844. See also RIBA84147 for a print of this building done a few years later dedicated to Mountnorris's heir.
