Site Details & Directions

“Sir William hath at his own great costs and charges erected and builded a new house, very fair, large and stately, made of brick and embattl’d.”

So, in 1566, wrote Thomas Larke, surveyor to Sir William Petre, about Ingatestone Hall, the new house that Sir William had built twenty-five years earlier in the midst of his Essex estates.  Since then, the house has passed through the hands of fifteen generations of the Petre family who continue to own and occupy it today.
