Near Chipping-Norton, Oxfordshire.—Brassey.

Heythrop is a stately mansion built in the Grecian style.

The rooms are large, and highly ornamented, some of them being also hung with tapestry.

The grounds are extensive, and well supplied with the adornments of wood and water.

In a former account of the place the conservatory is stated to be nearly two hundred and fifty feet long.
