NOTES: This drawing formed part of Lord Burlington's sequence of Palladio drawings. This preliminary plan must belong to the very earliest stage of conception. The great hall is flanked by narrow anterooms as shown in elevation on the preliminary design at Chatsworth which is accompanied by a plan of the ground floor (Chatsworth 52-53). However, this basement plan is probably an even earlier idea, for the elevation is completely pilastered, with paired pilasters at the angles of the main front and pilastered centrepiece. Both plans are renditions of the Star Chamber project of 1617.
