The Current Mansion House was Built Between 1767 – 1769
Constructed by the architect Sir Robert Taylor who was also responsible for other notable country houses and importantly the enlargement of the Bank of England.
The Hall is built on top of a Roman settlement and Tudor Hal.
Kevington was commissioned by Herman Behrens who was a director of The East India and Hudson Bay company. This trading connection allowed materials from around Europe to be imported in the construction of this English Palladian country House – the red clinker bricks came from Amsterdam, tiles from Heidelberg and marble from Livorno.
