View by the artist Amelia Long, Lady Farnborough (1772-1837) from Bromley Hill House, the property which she and her husband Charles Long (1761-1838) purchased in 1801. They enlarged the original 1760s house to their own designs and improved the much-admired garden which, by 1809, had two picturesque walks, each a mile long. Amelia Long exhibited four views taken in the grounds of Bromley Hill at the Royal Academy between 1811 and 1817. The gardens have long since disappeared but the house, much altered, survives as the Bromley Court Hotel on Bromley Hill.
