1876 – Entrance Lodge, Mentmore, Buckinghamshire

Architect: W. Niven


Perspective View including ground floor plan published in The Building News, August 22nd 1876. “This lodge was designed at the request of Miss Hannah de Rothschild (Lady Rosebery) to be erected at the new entrance gateway to the park, from the direction of Leighton Buzzard. The general style of the mansion (of which the design was adapted from that of Wollaton, Nottingham), was followed, without any close adherence in detail. The lodge was purposely kept small and unpretending ; to be erected in Aneaster stone, of which the house itself is built ; Mr. W. Niven, architect.”
