Motor sport at Goodwood was started by his grandfather, Freddie Richmond, who opened the Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1948. March established the Festival of Speed at Goodwood House in 1993. He then brought motor racing back to the circuit, which had closed in 1966, with the creation of the Goodwood Revival in 1998.

Goodwood House

Goodwood House is a country house and estate covering 4,900 hectares (12,000 acres) in Westhampnett, Chichester, West Sussex, England and is the seat of the Duke of Richmond. The house was built in about 1600 and is a Grade I listed building.[1]


The house and its grounds are the site of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, whilst elsewhere on the estate the Goodwood Circuit motorsport track at Chichester/Goodwood Airport hosts the annual Goodwood Revival, and the airfield has a Flying School. Goodwood Racecourse hosts 'Glorious Goodwood' and a number of other (horse) race meetings. The estate includes two golf courses and a cricket pitch, home to Goodwood Cricket Club, a hotel and a 1,600 ha (4,000 acres) organic farm.[2][3] The estate employs over 550 people and attracts 800,000 visitors a year. The headquarters of Rolls Royce Motor Cars is on the Estate.[4]

The Monarch's Way long-distance footpath crosses the downs from west to east, passing immediately south of the racecourse.

The landscaped park and woodlands of Goodwood are Grade I listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.[5]


Goodwood House was built circa 1600 and was acquired by Charles Lennox, 1st Duke of Richmond in 1697. A South wing was added by Matthew Brettingham and a North wing by James Wyatt. It may be that there was an intention to build the house in a unique octagonal layout, but only three of the eight sides were built and that intention has never been proved.[6]

Charles Lennox, 3rd Duke of Richmond commissioned Sir William Chambers to design the stable block in 1757 and James Wyatt to design the Kennels, originally for use by the Duke's hunting hounds but now used as a golf club house, in 1787. He also commissioned Goodwood Racecourse, which was established in 1802.[2]

The Goodwood Golf Course was laid out in 1901. Chichester/Goodwood Airport was built during World War II. Goodwood Circuit was laid out around the perimeter of the airfield by Frederick Gordon-Lennox, 9th Duke of Richmond in 1948.[2]

In 1982, the Goodwood estate played host to the World Road Cycling Championships.[7]

A large collection of documents from the Goodwood Estate Archives (1418–1984) is held by West Sussex Record Office.[8]

Having had a passion for film and photography since the age of 10, Lord Settrington left Eton College at the first possible opportunity and at 17 worked for the film director Stanley Kubrick on the film Barry Lyndon.[1]

In 2012, a major exhibition of his recent photographic work, 'Nature Translated', was staged at the Bermondsey Project Space in London. The exhibition was shown at the Marble Palace, part of the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg, in January 2014 and in Moscow as part of the Moscow Photography Biennale in April 2014. Two new exhibitions of the Duke's photographs were held in early 2015: 'Wood Land' which was held at Venus Over Manhattan Gallery in New York City, and 'Abstract and Intentional' which was held at Hamiltons Gallery in London.


The Earl of March, as he was then known, moved from London to the family seat Goodwood to take over management of the estate, following the family tradition of the duke handing over management of the estate to the heir apparent when the latter turns forty.[1]

Motor sport at Goodwood was started by his grandfather, Freddie Richmond, who opened the Goodwood Motor Circuit in 1948. March established the Festival of Speed at Goodwood House in 1993. He then brought motor racing back to the circuit, which had closed in 1966, with the creation of the Goodwood Revival in 1998. Both events have since become recognised[according to whom?][2] as some of the most unusual, exciting and creative events in the world.

The Goodwood Estate covers 12,000 acres to the north of Chichester. The Goodwood Estate Company is a diverse portfolio of businesses which includes: Goodwood Racecourse, a 4,000 acre organic farm, two eighteen hole golf courses, Goodwood Aerodrome and Flying School, and a 91 bedroom hotel. The Group employs over 550 people and attracts 800,000 visitors to the Estate each year. The headquarters of Rolls Royce Motor Cars is also on the Estate.


The Duke lives in Goodwood House with his wife, Janet (née Astor), and their four children.

He has been married twice, and has three sons and two daughters:

  • 1) Sally Clayton; one daughter
    • I) Lady Alexandra Gordon-Lennox (born 1985)
  • 2) The Honourable Janet Elizabeth Astor (born 1 December 1961), daughter of the 3rd Viscount Astor (30 November 1991 to date); one daughter and three sons
    • II) Charles Henry Gordon-Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara (born 20 December 1994), is the Duke's heir apparent
    • III) Lord William Rupert Charles Gordon-Lennox (born 29 November 1996)
    • IV) Lady Eloise Cordelia Gordon-Lennox (born 10 March 2000)
    • V) Lord Frederick Lysander Gordon-Lennox (born 10 March 2000)

In January 2016 he and the Duchess (then Earl and Countess of March) were attacked and tied up in a major jewel robbery at Goodwood.[3]
