HISTORICAL NOTE: Keppel Lodge is named after Augustus Keppel, later Viscount Keppel, a descendant of the Duke of Richmond, who lived 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 Nelson’s Flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. Honourably acquitted, he had a successful naval career becoming 1st Sea Lord in 1782, and the Member of Parliament for Chichester from 1755 to 1761.
LOCATION: Keppel Lodge is within walking distance of Emsworth Town Square, Millpond and Harbour foreshore. Emsworth occupies a place on the upper reaches of Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a much sought-after environment with a thriving range of local shops, cafés/restaurants, schools, doctors & dentist surgeries. Emsworth is also becoming known for its developing arts scene. Offering millpond and harbour walks, two sailing clubs and a public slipway, it is well placed for those interested in waterside activities or coastal walks.
