Description:Pictured is the east front of Beaudesert Hall which was the mansion of the Pagets, Marquesses of Anglesey. Its core was medieval, with later alterations. James Wyatt and Joseph Potter remodelled the interiors of the original Elizabethan House, built by Lord Paget, in a Regency Gothic style early in the 19th century. A century later, this was out of fashion and following a small fire, Beaudesert was completely remodelled by the 6th Marquess of Anglesey during 1909-1912. Lord Anglesey called in Captain Harry Lindsay to replace the Regency work with a series of rooms intended to represent different periods.
