John Gay (1909 - 1999)

Fenton House (1967)

Fenton House, situated on Hampstead Grove, was built in 1686 and used as a merchant's house. In 1936, Lady Katherine Binning bought the house and filled it with highly decorative porcelain, Georgian furniture and seventeenth-century needlework. In 1952, it was bequeathed to the National Trust. Fenton House boasts a large collection of porcelain, paintings and period furniture.
