    Holton Park, five miles east of Oxford, was bought by Elisha Biscoe in 1800. It was an old dilapidated manor house and was demolished in 1805. The new owner replaced it with a Georgian house between 1808 and 1815 and it is now part of Wheatley Park School.
  • The East End of Westminster Abbey and Hall -

    inscribed verso: E end of Westminster Abbey and Hall
    watercolour and black chalk
    12.9 by 21.7cm., 5 by 8 1/2 inches

    This shows Westminster Abbey and Hall taken from the south bank of the Thames. In 1834 the old Houses of Parliament were destroyed by fire - in the foreground of the present drawing is the garden which lay between the old buildings and the river and which disappeared when work began on the new building in 1836. This drawing must therefore date to pre-1836 and possibly after the fire of 1834.
