Col. Robert Walpole borrowed a book about Archbishop of Bremen from Sidney Sussex College library in 1667 - 1668. The overdue library book was discovered in the mid-1950s & returned, 288 years later. Houghton Hall has remained largely untouched, despite the Victorian passion for remodelling & redecorating & still belongs Marquess of Cholmondeley's family, currently the 7th Marquess, David Cholmondeley.
