A beautifully constructed folly. So much detail and history. Designed with Catholic connotations. The owner, Sir Thomas Tresham was the father of Francis who was part of the Gun Powder Plot. Lyvden Bield is another of Tresham's houses but this one is unfinished. Very interesting.
If you enjoy visiting historical oddities then Rushton triangular lodge is well worth a visit. The building has a fascinating design that needs to be read up about. The lady in the gift shop was very helpful and provided some interesting insight into the sight. A quirky little gem and well worth a 30 minute visit.
As you get close to the Lodge, stop and take time to study the interesting nature as to how symmetrical it appears. This three cornered structure seems to be way ahead of the time when it was built. The inside is really interesting as the sunlight shines through all the openings and casts shadows around the building. Another site where... 更多
Been on my 'must visit' list for 20 years! A real hidden gem! Tucked away in a corner of Rushton Hall. Terrible parking (in small layby in country lane), but the folly itself is stunning! Lots to see on the outside but empty and plain on inside. Lights in the cellar would have been good!! Otherwise, great little place to... 更多
It's a small building that doesn't take long to look around but it was very interesting to view. The guide was very knowledgeable and the little hut also sold lots of yummy chutneys, jams and wine.
Exterior of property looks fascinating. Not much to see inside. Just empty rooms. Took about 10 minutes to see it all. Would have liked an audio tour. Parking was very difficult with a coach in the lay by opposite. Not suitable for a disabled person. Wish we had not bothered.
Cost £3.50 to go in as it's a National Heritage place. Not really worth going in but worth paying so that they NH do the up-keep. It's really interesting, where else will you see a triangular building with everything in threes? Well worth visiting.
Fascinating building to look at although you really need to buy the guide book to find out anything as there's very little info on site. Unless you're some kind of buildings nerd, allow half to three quarters of an hour there at most
Built by Sir Thomas Tresham (of Gunpowder Plot Infamy) this is well worth a visit. Triangular relates to 3 of everything, floors, sides, windows per floor etc, which was a link to his Catholic faith. Situated on a back road between Desborough and Rushton you park on the side of the road and need to check opening times before you... 更多
interesting shaped building it doesn't take long to complete visit, may need to take a drink as there are no facilities for food and or drink
