Impington Hall built by John Pepys
Impington Hall was a large, grand building that was home to the Pepys family for over 200 years. The famous diarist Samuel Pepys visited the Hall on a number of occasions, as recorded in his entries during the 1660s, to see his uncle, Talbot Pepys:
July 15th, 1661
"At noon took horse again, having taken leave of my cousin Angier and rode to Impington, where I found my old uncle sitting all alone, like a man out of the world: he can hardly see; but all things else he pretty lively."
It was then auctioned a number of times between private individuals before being purchased by the Chivers family in 1926
