The end of a legend at Lotus
Team Lotus gradually took over the hall as it expanded to create one of F1's strangest factories, the design offices filling the grand rooms of the hall and the fabrication departments the old farm building behind the main house. As Ketteringham Hall was a protected building the team was never able to build new facilities as it expanded.
As a result, even if Team Lotus does survive, it is unlikely that Ketteringham Hall will ever be its headquarters again.
Ketteringham Hall now reverts to the Chapman family, heirs to Colin Chapman, and is likely to be used in the future to house the collection of Lotus cars which the family owns. It may even be opened to the public as a museum.
