Watercolour of Lindsey House

Watercolour of Lindsey House by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd, c 1850

TH Shepherd's watercolour of Lindsey House is an excellent image of one of the oldest houses in Chelsea. In 1750 Count von Zinzendorff set up a commune for a Moravian religious group. The venture failed and the house was divided into four parts. In 1808 pioneering engineer Sir Marc Brunel took the middle house and it was here that his equally famous son Isambad was brought up. Sir Marc was blamed for some unacceptable alterations that were later corrected at great cost.
