Current Planning Issues
John Moses, Chairman of the Marble Hill Society, kindly offered to lead a private tour for our members of this English Heritage building.
Marble Hill was built for Henrietta Howard, Countess of Suffolk, the mistress of George II and the architects were Lord Herbert and Roger Morris. The house was built between 1724 and 1729 and is an outstanding example of the English Palladian style.
The house and gardens were intended as an Arcadian retreat from crowded 18th-century London. Its grand interiors have been exquisitely restored and recreated and include a fine collection of paintings of the English 18th century school.
John lead us on a fascinating tour, all the more special as we had the whole house to ourselves!
