View of the west front of Audley House, one of the largest English mansions, to be newly built in the Jacobean period. Celia Fiennes visited the house, during a 1697 tour. She commented 'Thence we went to Audlyend a house of the Earle of Sussex which makes a noble appearance like a town, so many towers and buildings off stone within a parke which is walled round, a good River runs through it, we pass over the bridge; its built around 3 Courts, there are 30 great and little towers on the top and a great Cupilow in the middle .... it is altogether a stately palace.'
