Eaton Hall, seat of the Grosvenor family since the 15th century, lies in the 11,000 acre Eaton Estate which includes woodland, a deer park and agricultural land. When Buckler visited in the 1820s to make these drawings, the house and the gardens were being extensively modernised at enormous expense - not surprising when the Grosvenors were the wealthiest family in Britain at the time and owned substantial amounts of land, including parts of London.
