This drawing depicts the grand exterior to Barningham Hall in Norfolk.
Barningham Hall was built for Sir Edward Paston at the beginning of the 17th century. The house is a fine example of Jacobean architecture, constructed of red brick and stone. Its facade is crammed with mullioned windows that are distinctly transomed and pedimented. The numerous stepped gables, angled buttresses and polygonal chimneys add to the overall elegance of the building. Later additions were made to the house and grounds by Sir Humphry Repton at the beginning of the 19th century.
