Lee Priory, a large country house, was remodelled in the Gothic style by antiquarian Thomas Barrett in the late-eighteenth century, in part using designs from English architects George Gilbert Scott and James Wyatt, amongst others. Barrett was inspired by his friend, the collector Horace Walpole and his house, Strawberry Hill, in Twickenham, Surrey. Lee Priory was demolished in 1954, however a room known as the Strawberry Room is preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
