Bowood House
Bowood House
Bowood is a Grade I listed Georgian house and the home of the Marquess of Lansdowne. The 'Big House', which stood just off to the right, was demolished in 1955 for economic reasons (see picture at LinkExternal link ). What remains is still an impressive set of buildings, including this orangery by Robert Adam. This side of the building is open to the public and contains a large collection of paintings and sculptures. One of the rooms was the laboratory where Joseph Priestley discovered oxygen in 1774.
