View of a house in Great Mundane, in Hertfordshire. Great Mundane is situated four miles from Ware and two miles from Wadesmill. This house, which dates from the Georgian period, was built on the site of a Benedictine nunnery, founded in 1164. The nunnery was dissolved in 1449. The house in the print was enlarged in the 19th century and is thought to have been owned by Michael W Balfe (1808-70), the opera singer and composer.
