This drawing shows one of the corridors in Eaton Hall, residential seat of the Earls of Grosvenor. Building of the house began in the 1440s when Raufe, the second son of Sir Thomas Grosvenor, married Joan of Eton, heiress to the Eaton Estate. The house exemplified the architecture of the time and when Buckler visited, it still retained much of its Elizabethan opulence. During the 19th century however, the estate was extensively renovated and much of the Elizabethan facade was lost.
