Kimberley Hall

Kimberley Hall, Wymondham, Norfolk

Built in 1712, for Sir John Wodehouse (1669-1754), 4th Bt., direct ancestor of the creator of Jeeves and Wooster, P.G. Wodehouse. It was designed by William Talman, Comptroller of Royal Works for King William III, who was the same man who remodelled Chatsworth in Derbyshire and Uppark in Sussex. The idyllic grounds and lake were landscaped by the great "Capability" Brown. Woodlea, built for Margaret Louisa Vanderbilt (1845-1924) in upstate New York, took its inspiration from Kimberley Hall. Today, the grand old house is still the family home to the Wodehouse family, Earls of Kimberley, and is touted as "one of the finest wedding venues in Norfolk".
