Apethorpe Palace, Apethorpe - East Northamptonshire

Country house, late C15/early C17. Following 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. Intrusive former school buildings have been demolished and an extensive programme of further repairs and renovations is currently underway, including reversal of harmful alterations carried out by the school. Public access for 50 days a year is managed by English Heritage.
