About Grittleton House... 

The original house ‘Grittleton Manor’ which rested on the site was a three bay, Jacobean manor dating from 1660. 

 Major changes took place after Joseph Neeld aged 38 purchased the estate 
in 1828. Neeld was a london solicitor who had inherited a fortune of £900,000 from his uncle Philip rundell (of rundell & Bridge) the silversmith; Grittleton was to become his country seat. At that time the estate consisted of 1,248 acres within the parish. The present Grittleton House was built between 1835 and 1856. Joseph Neeld was an enthusiastic patron of the arts and so he built his palatial mansion to house his important collection of sculptures and other art treasures.
