Art at Hughenden Park (6)
Art students from Buckinghamshire New University have created a temporary outdoor exhibition within the park, with various different exhibits inspired by the history of Hughenden. There is more information here LinkExternal link

Two of the benches here have the following historical information:

Benjamin Disraeli purchased the manor in 1848 at price of 35,000. (Over 2 million at today's values. He had received a loan from two parliamentary colleagues because if he wished to rise within government he had to have a country constituency and to have a country constituency he had to be a landowner.)

In 1947 Hughenden Manor was transferred to the National Trust. (In whose ownership it remains today).
