Just look and think of the number three, clever but his message can be unravelled. The Triangular Lodge is a folly, designed and constructed between 1593 and 1597 by Sir Thomas Tresham. He was a Roman Catholic and was imprisoned for a total of fifteen years in the late 16th century for refusing to become a Protestant. On his release... 更多
This small, three sided building is absolutely fascinating. We declined buying the small, £2.20 guide but, within minutes, it was clear that it was going to be worth having its 28 pages, with pictures, diagrams and explanations. Reading it out aloud (if no one else is there to be disturbed) really brings out the quirkiness of the building and its... 更多
Find out on the internet something about the Triangular Lodge before you go. There is very little to the inside of this folly but when you know some of the history surrounding it all becomes clear.
Beautiful building. Went with a 76 yr old and 3 yr old and we all enjoyed it. About an hour long visit. Lady at information desk very informative. Had been raining, so welly boots for child. Narrow spiral steps up and down once in building so flat shoots required. Very interesting building and pleasant surprise.
Dropped in on the way to Oundle as I had seen it years ago but only from the road. It was a pleasant surprise and very interesting. We love follies and this was no exception .It doesn't take long to enjoy it but it's well worth a visit.
Rushton Triangular Lodge is a small English Heritage property, the building itself is in very good condition and the exterior is really worth seeing and will be of interest to anyone who likes architecture, the interior is also in good condition but the rooms are all unfurnished so there is not a lot to see. Parking is free on the... 更多
Yes there is nothing inside and yes if you don't have a guide or read up you won't get it. The truth is the meaning, the time and who. Living locally what the guide won't tell you is that there are tunnels running from the pub and the hall to Rothwell. Escape routes for Catholics and priests for this is... 更多
Unusual style but intriguing too. Now maintained by English Heritage. Doesn't take long to view it so worth a quick visit if nearby. No car park so use the small lay by opposite the entrance. There is a small shop on site staffed by friendly and helpful staff.
A baffling, barmy, bewildering folly that was built by a fella obsessed with the number three!!! 3 walls of 33 feet in length, each with 3 triangular windows. The building of course has 3 floors. My 3 thoughts on the property are 1.) Stunning building to view from the outside, I enjoyed looking at the inscriptions, gargoyles and alternating bands... 更多
