This pencil drawing is of the imposing facade of Kentwell Hall in Suffolk.

Built between 1500 to 1550 by the Clopton family, Kentwell remains a fine example of Tudor brick-built architecture. The site is important architecturally on account of the rare moat house, which still survives. It contains the dairy, bakehouse and brewhouse and can be reached by a bridge that crosses the encircling moat. As well as possessing a fine exterior, Kentwell is noted for its splendid Great Hall and Jacobean dining rooms.
