Heveningham Hall

Heveningham Hall is a Grade I listed Georgian mansion built between 1778–80 incorporating work from an earlier Queen Anne house and set in 5,000 acres of Capability Brown parkland. The house was designed by Sir Robert Taylor with interiors of circa 1781-4 subsequently designed by James Wyatt. Wyatt's work at Heveningham is among his most significant. The length of the house, twenty-five bays, far surpasses the ordinary and contributes to the ranking of Heveningham as one of the most important country houses in Britain.
