Grittleton House is a large house near Chippenham, Wiltshire, quite close to Badminton, built between 1835 and 1856 by Joseph Neeld, who had purchased the estate. Neeld was a London solicitor who had inherited a fortune of £900,000 from his great-uncle, the silversmith Philip Rundell. The great new house that he built was probably one of the sights of the neighbourhood at the time. The photograph shows a number of adults and children in front of the house – one on a pony.
