Archaeological dig to start on Jacobean house remains

The archaeology team return to Chiswick to excavate the site where the former Jacobean mansion stood.

In November the archaeology team will return to Chiswick to excavate the site where the former Jacobean mansion stood.

This fine red brick house was pulled down by the 5th Duke of Devonshire, husband of the acclaimed Duchess, Georgiana. They replaced it with two wings (since demolished) on the Palladian villa, turning it into a proper country residence.

The area was previously used by English Heritage as a car park and off limits to the public. It will become the site for a temporary marquee for hosting weddings and celebratory events.
