Fifty years, three generations, three architects and some of the greatest craftsmen of the Georgian age contributed to the creation of Nostell Priory, yet work was never quite finished. Nostell's creative heyday began when the young Sir Rowland Winn employed Robert Adam and Thomas Chippendale to create the sumptuous rooms still on display today. They spared no expense - until the money ran out and work ceased. However family life went on, the Winns' fortunes revived with each generation adding to the richness of Nostell's story and collections.
