Lecture by Val Bott

From the 1660s the Gunnersbury estate comprised a Palladian mansion and terraced garden surrounded by farmland; a century later the garden was remodelled and the parkland enlarged with Kent’s advice.  The house was replaced in 1802 by two new mansions, both later acquired by the Rothschilds. Gunnersbury became a public park in 1926, and is now at the mid-point of a major restoration.  Elements of all these phases remain.
