Gedling House

 

Gedling House 1803For my MA Building Conservation dissertation written in 1995 I undertook a history of Gedling House. I recently had the files converted to a 'more modern' format by Malcolm of Luxsoft for which I'm extremely grateful. I thought there might be some interest in my dissertation as it shows the history and development of the house in the late eighteenth and earlier nineteenth centuries so I'm gradually uploading it here. Previously the house had only been studied from a stylistic perspective and I thought the archive material I'd looked at might be of interest to some. I've left off the pictures for now but hope to add most of them at a later date. When I have the time and inclination I'll add details of new studies as well. There is a copy of the original at the Local Studies Library, Angel Row, Nottingham.

My interest in Gedling House sprang from the fact that as a young family we used to walk through the grounds and went blackberry and raspberry picking in the overgrown walled garden. The grounds have been off limits for a long time and the overgrown walled garden is now a car park. However, Gedling Woods still make for a great short walk.
