Phoenix rising? a view to restoration of Mavisbank House

Monday February 12, 2024

Three centuries on since its conception, and fifty years since the fire that left Mavisbank a vulnerable shell, there is at last a real prospect of rescuing this internationally important William Adam house from oblivion. A forensic approach to research and analysis in the remarkable Clerk of Penicuik archive has enabled William Kay to create a full reconstruction of the original architecture, interiors, collections and designed landscape during Sir John Clerk’s tenure, 1723–1755.
