Wolterton Park, Norfolk, was built to the design of the Office of Works architect Thomas Ripley, between 1725 and 1741, for Horatio, 1st Lord Walpole, the brother of our first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole. George Stanley Repton, one of Humphry Repton’s sons, designed the east wing and pavilion and added the stairs and perron on the garden side in the late 1820s. Winner of the Georgian Group Architectural Award for Restoration of a Georgian Country House in 2022, Wolterton Park had been left derelict for 30 years before the present owners Peter Sheppard and Keith Day purchased the estate in 2016. They have lovingly restored the house, gardens and estate buildings. The owner- led tour will begin in the house, followed the gardens and will conclude with a champagne and canapé reception in the Saloon.
Refreshments and canapé reception are included with this visit. This event is for members and their guests.
