SK 4919 ASHBY ROAD 9/11 (north side)

15.3.65 Garendon Park, The Triumphal Arch GV I

Triumphal Arch, of the 1730s, by Ambrose Phillipps of Garendon (d.1737). Of ashlar, with a moulded round-headed carriage arch, the soffit of which has octagonal coffering in stucco on brick. The east front has 4 Corinthian columns on tall pedestals supporting a rich entablature. The attic, crowned by a cornice, has a fine relief of the Metamorphosis of Actalon. The west side has 2 Corinthian columns on pedestals with a pediment over the entablature. Cornice crowning attic. Keystone to arch in form of a head. The interior of the arch has some tiny rooms. Based on the Arch of Titus in Rome, the Triumphal Arch at Garendon is a very early (perhaps the earliest) example of an English building inspired directly from an Ancient Roman source, archaeologically interpreted. Mark Aironard, "Ambrose Phillipps of Garendon'", Architectural History, 1965.
