Elton Hall

UK»England»Cambridgeshire»Elton Hall

Elton Hall stands in the midst of unspoilt landscaped parkland and is a fascinating mix of styles surrounded by stunning gardens. It is a mixture of styles the south front incorporates the 15th century tower and chapel which were built at the time of Henry VII. In the 17th century a new wing was added to the west. The Drawing Room is the largest room in the house and was formed from the medieval Chapel around 1740. The 18th century ceiling with its enriched cornice and frieze remains, but the present decoration dates from 1860. The Library contains a large collection of books and represents a continuous interest from the time of Sir Thomas Proby. The garden you see today was laid out in 1913 with the construction of the paths, the lawns, the lily pond, the well-head and the flower garden wall. By 1980 a large part of the Edwardian garden had fallen into disrepair and since the early 1980s there has been a major restoration programme. The flower garden has been replanted and a new sunken garden, a shrub garden and an arboretum created.
