L3380. This photograph provides a view of the sweeping drive leading up to the main entrance of Tythrop House in Kingsey. Built between 1660 and 1680 for James Herbert, sixth son of the Earl of Pembroke and Chamberlain to Charles I, the building has survived many changes of fortune. By the 1940s it had fallen to ruin, but has since been restored and is now protected as a Grade I listed building, and primarily used for wedding receptions. Many features survive on the interior of the house, including an 18th century gallery complete with ceiling decorated with original plasterwork by the well known Morris family, and late Rococo work by the Francini brothers.
