Chantry Park Gatepiers

Listed Buildings in Ipswich: No 1 Chantry Park Gatepiers

The Chantry is a large 18th century mansion that stands in approximately 50 hectares of parkland a mile-and-a-half to the west of Ipswich town centre. Once the home of Sir Fitzroy Edward Kelly, Baron of the Exchequer, it was bequeathed to the town in the 1920’s. The gates to the park, and the Chantry itself, are just two of the 600 listed buildings/monuments in Suffolk’s county town that I’ll be featuring on this blog in the coming year (or however long it takes me photograph them all).
