Tuesday we visited Knole Park and due to extensive building works concentrated on the newly restored building in the Orangery. In January 2010 the Orangery and adjoining rooms came under National Trust control, the project was to create a new visitors centre and open up the area.
A copy of the statue Pereus slaying Medusa which was originally in the Great Hall in Knole and was moved in about 1911 to the Orangery for storage where it is today.
