This drawing depicts the imposing facade of Blickling Hall in Norfolk.

Blickling Hall is one of England's finest Jacobean mansions. Built by the architect Robert Lyminge for Sir Henry Hobart between 1616 and 1628, the house remained unaltered until the late 18th century. Lyminge had previously been involved in the creation of another fine Jacobean house, found at Hatfield in Hertfordshire. Blickling's main attraction is without doubt the fine Long Galley, lined with windows on one side and possessing an elaborate plastered ceiling. A richly decorated staircase, similar in style to one seen at Hatfield, can also be found inside.
