The incomplete garden lodge of Sir Thomas Tresham sits overlooking beautiful open fields with a wooded backdrop in the heart of the Rockingham Forest. It is surrounded by the remains of an Elizabethan moated garden and acres of wildflower meadow: the perfect outdoor venue.This unusual building was designed and built by Sir Thomas Tresham between 1595 and 1605. Sir Thomas died in 1605 and his son, Francis, could not finish the project – he ended his days in the Tower of London as a result of his involvement in the Gunpowder Plot.
The building lies virtually unaltered from when work stopped in 1605 and the grounds are now being sympathetically conserved.
Lyveden was intended as a place for entertaining from which guests would gaze out over the surrounding estate. With its rich and colourful history it provides a truly unique backdrop for your marquee wedding reception. You could even have a firework finale to provide a memorable reminder of why Lyveden still stands incomplete after the events of November 1605.
