Moggerhanger Park (Moggerhanger)

Moggerhanger Park is a fine house at Moggerhanger in Bedfordshire.

The entrance is in Park Road.

Set in its own parkland, it was built in the 18th century and is the most complete surviving example of the work of the outstanding architect Sir John Soane.

The house was built for Godfrey Thornton, who in addition to being cousin of William Wilberforce was also Governor of the Bank of England.

It has Grade One listed status, and the parkland was landscaped by Himphry Repton.

For most of the 20th century, Moggerhanger Park was used as a sanatorium, and it was only after this use ceased that its architectural importance came to be appreciated.

It is now open to the public, and has conference suites and function rooms.
