OLD CAMPDEN HOUSE

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  OLD CAMPDEN HOUSE
DESCRIPTION + /

Ruins of Sir Baptist Hickes' magnificent Flemish-baroque mansion of 1612, which was destroyed by a departing Royalist garrison in May 1646 due to the strategic importance attached to its position by Parlimentary forces. A fragment of wall from the west side of the south front is all that survives. The house stood on the uppermost of a series of terraces which face south overlooking the Cam valley, and was the focus of a high quality English Renaissance garden [SP 13 NE 1].
