Mapledurham House

Set in tranquil surroundings alongside the River Thames, this late-16thC Elizabethan house is still the home of the descendants of the Blount family. Built by Sir Michael Blount whilst Lieutenant of the Tower of London, the house contains a collection of paintings and family portraits, oak staircases, original plaster ceilings and a private chapel in Strawberry Hill Gothick added in 1797. Mapledurham has literary connections with Alexander Pope, Kenneth Graham and John Galsworthy. More recently it was the setting for the film `The Eagle Has Landed'.
