The original house on this 3,000-acre estate was built for Sir Thomas Chicheley in the 1640s, rebuilt and added to over the years, and finally restored to its proper splendor today.

The grounds at Wimpole are perfect for an afternoon walk. The newly refurbished folly is pretty to walk around and the views over the fields are beautiful. Highly reccomend a visit if you are in the area.
