Completed in 1776, Strawberry Hill was extensively remodelled by its most famous owner, Horace Walpole. Walpole was one a group of four male friends who called themselves the “Committee of Taste” and advised each other on architecture and interiors. The decorative style of Strawberry Hill is often described as “queer gothic”. On his death in 1797, Walpole left Strawberry Hill House to his niece, the lesbian sculptor Anne Damer, who lived there until 1811.
The oldest door in Britain in Westminster Abbey -A 900-year-old door was put in place in the 1050s, during the reign of the Abbey's founder, Edward the Confessor. The door, which measures 6.5ft by 4ft, was made from one tree which probably grew between AD 924 and 1030. Simon Thurley, of English Heritage, said: "It is incredible to think that when the door was made the Norman Conquest had not yet happened and William of Normandy was still a young man of about 20." That's pretty cool.
