An image of the Grade II* listed Broomfield House in Broomfield Park. The house dates back to the sixteenth century, and the park, which is also Grade II listed, is thought to be one of only three Baroque water-gardens in the UK (the others are Chatsworth and Powys Castle). A fire in 1984 meant the house was emptied and in the year of this painting, 1991, the Broomfield Historic Buildings Trust was formed with the aim of restoring the building and ensuring a suitable use of it. The building suffered further fires in 1993 and 1994, but the Trust is still working towards a restoration.
