Foxhill House #2

This time the B&W Fujifilm x10 version/replacement taken during a pleasant evening walk today. Foxhill House is a Gothic revival style building on what is now part of the Whiteknights campus of the University of Reading . It currently houses the University's School of Law. The house was originally built in 1868 by the famous architect Alfred Waterhouse and used as his own residence until, in the early 1870s. In the early years of the 20th Century Foxhill was occupied by Rufus Isaacs, 1st Marquess of Reading, who was variously Member of Parliament for Reading, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, British ambassador to the United States and Viceroy of India. It has been rumoured that British occultist Aleister Crowley spent time living at Foxhill House
