Hampton Court




Hampton Court





-In 1514 Thomas Wolsey began building a magnificent palace on the north bank of the River Thames.
-Not much of Wolsey's original building remains due to the remodeling by Henry VIII and later kings.
-Henry VIII received the palace from Wolsey in the mid to late 1520s, although he retained apartments there, as well as at all the other royal palaces until he fell from favour and was arrested.
- In 1537, Jane Seymour gave birth to the future King Edward VI at Hampton court. The baby prince was christened in the magnificent Chapel Royal a few days later. Jane fell very ill after Edward's birth and died in the palace only two weeks after giving birth to the new heir.
-Henry VIII spent three of his honeymoons at Hampton Court, as did his daughter Mary I when she married Philip of Spain.
-It was at Hampton Court that Henry VIII was told of the infidelity of Kathryn Howard, which would eventually lead to her arrest and execution (and according to some, why her ghost inhabits the Haunted Gallery.) Henry also married his sixth wife, Kateryn Parr, in the Queen's Closet at the Palace, adjoining the Chapel Royal.
-Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I all stayed at Hampton Court though made no major alterations unlike their father.
-Parts of the Tudor palace were pulled down when construction began on a new building for William and Mary. The change in architecture styles is very marked as is the dramatic difference in the colors of the bricks.













Hampton Gay manor house

My other main Exploration interest besides railways is old and disused buildings. This ruin though takes 'old' to a higher plane! This is the ruin of Hampton Gay manor house 7 miles north of Oxford, at SP48611649. Largely dating from 1544, the house was the focal point of the now-lost medieval village of Hampton Gay, said to be Oxfordshire's best-preserved archaeological site. The house remained largely unaltered throughout its life until being destroyed by a 'mystery' fire in 1887. A Scheduled Ancient Monument, plans to restore the house have failed. Built to the traditional Elizabethan 'E'-shape, a number of period features can still be found, inc. mullioned and transomed windows, one still with metal lights, plus heraldic crests over the doors and, lurking behind the trees, a fabulous chimney stack! A ruined summer house and paper mill exist nearby too. The mill was used as a mortuary for some of the 32 killed in the Shipton train crash of 24.12.1874 on the adjoining railway line when a wheel on a coach of the packed Paddington to Birkenhead Express collapsed and caused one of the worst train crashes of the era! A monument to some of the dead can be found in the churchyard of the redundant St. Giles church west of the manor house beside the railway. I aim to create a new photoset for the Hampton / Shipton area in 2012, such is the rich history of this part of Oxfordshire.
