Cavendish Hall

  • Built / Designed For: Thomas Halifax

    House & Family History: In the 1960s Cavendish Hall was purchased by Thomas S. Matthews, managing editor of "Time" magazine, as a wedding present for his wife, Pamela. T.S. Matthews wrote a number of books at Cavendish Hall, including his most famous work, 1974's "Great Tom: Notes Towards the Definition of T. S. Eliot." Mrs. Matthews lived here until her death in 2005, when she bequeathed Cavendish Hall to the Landmark Trust, together with £1 million to refurbish house so that it could be converted for use as holiday accommodation.
