View of Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. The house was commissioned by Robert Cecil, first Earl of Salisbury, in 1607-12 and was built at a cost of £40,000. It was designed by Robert Liming or Lyminge, a local builder and craftsman. The house which stands in its own Great park, is very large and has been traditionally designed around an E shape with the end wings emphasised by square angle turrets. Inside the house was lavishly decorated and there are some fine examples of Jacobean craftsmanship such as a grand oak staircase and the beautiful stained glass window in the chapel. The house was largely refurbished by the second Marques of Salisbury in the 19th century and is still home to his descendants.
