A quick History

Certain parts of Chartwell date back to between 1515 to 1546, whilst King Henry VIII was on the throne, and were originally built as a hunting lodge. After passing through many different owners, Chartwell was bought by Sir Winston Churchill and it became his family home. Whilst living at Chartwell, Churchill took up painting – much of which can still be viewed there today. In 1966, the National Trust gained ownership of Chartwell and it is now a museum dedicated to Churchill and his family, an art gallery and garden. Another famous resident of Chartwell is a marmalade coloured cat with white paws, called Jock. Churchill insisted that the National Trust maintain a cat presence at Chartwell. The current resident cat is Jock VI.
