Among the well-known faces of the 20th century the bulldog jowl of British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill must be one of the most familiar and indeed respected. Britain and the Commonwealth farewelled this statesman with a state funeral in 1965, and although his life and time in public office was not without controversy, his stalwart leadership and oft-quoted oratory during the dark days of World War II ensured the gratitude and affection of many. Churchill purchased Chartwell in 1922, attracted by its wonderful view of The Weald in Kent, and he sought solace there until shortly before his death.
