Featuring designs by Vanbrugh, Adam, Gibbs, Kent and Soane, Stowe is one of the finest 18th Century houses in Europe. Following its decline in the 19th Century, the Stowe House Preservation Trust was established and embarked on a six-phase programme of repair and restoration led by Purcell. Work to date include stone restoration, re-laying of its roofs in Westmorland and local slates, reintroduction of forecourt grass, repair of the spectacular marble saloon, structural repairs to the central mansion roof and south portico stonework. Restoration of the library's original roof structure and re-gilding of the ornate plaster ceiling.
