Parham House & Gardens

0 reviews


The foundation stone of this beautiful Elizabethan house was laid in 1577 by the two year old Thomas Palmer, and Parham has been a family home ever since. In 1922, Lady Emma Barnard’s great-grand-father, The Hon. Clive Pearson, younger son of Viscount Cowdray, bought Parham from the 13th Lady Zouche, and he and his wife Alicia opened the house to visitors in 1948, after the Second World War when it had also been home to evacuee children and Canadian soldiers. Off the Long Gallery at the top of the house there is a fascinating exhibition which touches on the period between 1922 & 1948, with many family photographs as well as photographs of the building works which took place during that time.
