Knebworth House, Knebworth - North Hertfordshire

Knebworth House comprises one wing of a C16 courtyard house remodelled in neo-Tudor and Gothic style in the C19. This later external work was in very poor condition for many years, and despite a major campaign of work some years ago with Historic England grant aid, much remains to be repaired. The most recent repair project was the 'Watchman's Tower' range, for which Historic England awarded a Repair Grants for Heritage at Risk grant in 2018. However, this still leaves large elements of the house and its related buildings in need of repair.
