Shardeloes, near Amersham, Buckinghamshire, was rebuilt by Stiff Leadbetter in 1758 for William Drake; it has one of the earliest of Robert Adam's interiors. The house has now been converted into flats. The artist also exhibited ‘Near Shardeloes Park’ at the N.E.A.C., winter 1913 (224), which suggests that the Tate picture may have been painted c. 1913.
