Notes NOTES: Uppark was built c. 1685-1690 by William Talman. The east facade was originally the entrance, but this was changed after 1746, when the estate changed hands (it passed to the Fetherstonhaugh family). Offices were built to the left and right hand of the north side, the entrance was moved there and a Tuscan screen added by Humphry Repton in 1812. In 1989 the house was gutted by fire. It has since been restored and was re-opened to the public in 1995 (it is a National Trust property).
