Thursday 1st August 2019
£33.00 All seats
Home to Lord Petre and his family Ingatestone Hall retains much of its original Tudor form and appearance with its mullioned windows, high chimneys, crow-step gables and oak-panelled rooms and is surrounded by ten acres of enclosed gardens comprising extensive lawns, walled garden and stew pond. We shall be served tea/coffee with biscuits on arrival, followed by a guided tour of the property. Highlights of the tour include the oak-panelled Stone Hall, created by Lady Rasch to replace the former Great Hall, lost when the West wing was demolished; the Old Dining Room with its walls lined with oak-panelling and tapestries; the Queen Anne Room in contrasting 18th century style with pine rather than oak panelling and the 29 metre long Gallery lined with 40 portraits of successive generations of the Petre family and containing displays of memorabilia accumulated over the centuries.
