New Place was designed by Sir Edwin and is a masterpiece of brickwork of exceptional quality. In 1904, Mrs. A. S Frankyln commissioned Sir Edwin to design a house, firstly to incorporate the magnificent interior of an early 17th Century mansion in Bristol scheduled for demolition which she had inherited and, secondly to perpetuate the name of Shakespeare’s house in Stratford Upon Avon called New Place with which the Franklyn’s were connected though the Arden family branch of Shakespeare’s mother, Mary Arden. Indulge in historical architecture and soak up the beautiful Hampshire countryside!
