Nonsuch Palace model
An Oxford professor has produced a model of the famous local palace based on his own research which should give us a much better idea of what it may have looked like. Built by Henry VIII and loved by Elizabeth I, the palace was eventually dismantled by one of Charles II's mistresses, Barbara Villiers. The model is on display from today in Nonsuch Mansion House and will be open to the general public from 17 September. The BBC site has a tantalising picture of it (above) and Friends of Nonsuch Museum has the opening times of the museum. Go and visit it as it is just across the park from the school.
