Compton Verney

Until the early twentieth century Compton Verney was home to the Verney or Willoughby de Broke family. In the twentieth century the house and lands changed hands a number of times before eventually falling derelict, with parts of the land and house being sold off.

In 1993, however, the house was rescued by the Compton Verney House Trust, who purchased the house and immediate grounds thanks to a generous grant from the Peter Moores Foundation. The extensive building programme gave it a new life as an art gallery.
