Apethorpe Palace, Apethorpe - East Northamptonshire

Country house, late C15/early C17. Following a Public Inquiry in 2004 the Secretary of State confirmed the Compulsory Purchase Order. Historic England took possession of the site in September 2004 and carried out a programme of repairs over the following decade. The building was purchased by a private buyer in 2015. An extensive programme of further repairs and renovations is currently underway, including reversal of harmful mid-C20 alterations by the school. The first phase of the programme is due to be completed in spring 2021. Public access for 50 days a year is managed by English Heritage.
