Witley Court, Great Witley, Worcestershire: perspective from the north-east

Nash, John (1752-1835)
NOTES: Originally built in 1655, Witley Court was remodelled by John Nash c. 1806. It is shown in this print during the time Queen Adelaide (the widow of King William IV) rented Witley Court for three years from 1843. This print is probably based on a drawing made by John Wood to illustrate an article in the 'Illustrated London News' published on the occasion of her stay there. See RIBA21052 for a drawing on which this print was probably based.
