Alresford Hall

  • Garden & Outbuildings: Alresford Hall is most famous because of an 1816 painting by John Constable entitled “The Quarters Behind Alresford Hall.” Today in the collection of National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia), the painting shows what a Constable called “a little fishing house” that was built in the 1770s on the Sixpenny Brook behind the House. Two hundred years later the Grade II*-listed chinoiserie style building, today called The Quarters, still stands as a waterside hut (see "Images" section).
