Northbrook House

  • Collections: An extremely fine panel carving of dead game and fish by Grinling Gibbons is today set into the overmantel of the Entrance Hall at Kirtlington Park. This wood carving probably came from Northbrook, the family's earlier seat that was demolished at the time Kirtlington was built.

  • Garden & Outbuildings: A brick dovecote and parts of the garden walls are extant.
