Keppel Lodge is named after Augustus Keppel, 1st Viscount Keppel, who was lodged here in 1779 pending court martial when he was accused of misconduct and neglect of duty at the Battle of Ushant during the war of Austrian Succession. His flagship at Ushant was HMS Victory which 27 years later was Nelsons flagship at Trafalgar. Honourably acquitted, he had a successful naval career becoming 1st Sea Lord in 1782 and at one point MP for Chichester from 1755 to 1761. This practical and perfectly located family home is steeped in history. Viewing is highly recommended.
