View of the grounds of Madingley Park, which is now part of the buildings of Cambridge University. The brick mansion was owned by the Hynde family and the oldest ranges are from the south and east ranges which were built by John Hynde in c.1543. During the 18th century there was further building work and Capability Brown was commissioned to landscape the grounds in 1756. The artist Miss Cotton is likely to be a relative of the then owner Sir St. Vincent Cotton, Bart.
