Cottages line the old village green while the gates to beautiful Mentmore Towers peer out enticingly. The house is an exemplary slice of Victoriana and the finest surviving work of the man who built the Crystal Palace, Sir Joseph Paxton. Built from stone and boasting a glass roof, the astounding property was created in 1852 for Baron Meyer de Rothschild.
