A Tudor founder, blind book collector, wayward 17th century grand tourist, eccentric Victorian, Hollywood actor, commanding wives and dedicated daughters – Lamport is full of characters. As home to the Isham family for over four centuries, the fortunes, interests and trials of each generation have left their mark.
Nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside, and yet only a short drive from the motorway network, Lamport has a story worth telling. Developed from a Tudor manor house, architecturally the hall has been worked on by John Webb, Smith of Warwick and William Burn but is best known for its classical frontage.
