The house and gardens of Uppark in South Harting, Petersfield, West Sussex. The house, set high on the South Downs, was built for Ford Grey, first Earl of Tankerville (c.1655-1701), politician and conspirator affiliated with the Rye House plotters who supposedly planned to kill Charles II and his brother to raise an insurrection. The house was sold in 1747 to Sir Matthew Fetherstonhaugh. It is now run by the National Trust. Plate from James Beverell's Les Delices de la Grande Bretagne et de L'Irlande. Formerly in the collection of Robert Johannes Meyer (1882-1976), Hamburg lawyer and print collector.
