BRAMLEY ROAD TQ 29 NE (north side, off) 19/132 Orangery with front terrace and wall with sphinxes at Trent Park
Orangery, now part of music school. Circa 1930 by Col R Cooper for Sir Philip Sassoon, incorporating early C18 sculpture from Wrest Park, Beds. Red brick in Flemish bond with stone dressings and sculpture; sphinxes of Coade stone; flat roof concealed by parapet. One storey. 5 bays, the end bays canted. Each bay, and the returned end bays, has a round-arched small-pane French window below fanlight with radial glazing bars. Band below coped parapet which supports 3 sculptures (at centre and ends) each comprising a garlanded urn flanked by cherubs. In front of Orangery is terrace approached up 4 shallow steps to each side of which are low brick walls which return to the organgery as quadrants; next to the steps they terminate in plinths which have Coade stone roundels of the seasons and support sphinxes, one of which is dated 1787. Late C20 music shool addition to rear of orangery is not of special interest. Orangery listed principally because of interest of the C18 sculptures.
