Bedwell Park House, Essendon, Home of C. G. Arbuthnot, Director, Bank of England

I have posted two post card images of Bedwell Park House (with higher resolution images available). It was the home of Charles George Arbuthnot, director of the Bank of England, and later became home for the Royal Victoria Patriotic School for girls.   It is said that the potting shed of Bedwell House is the one illustrated by Beatrix Potter in The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
