Rushton Triangular Lodge - Northamptonshire
This delightful triangular building was designed by Sir Thomas Tresham (father of one of the Gunpowder Plotters) and constructed between 1593 and 1597. It is a testament to Tresham�s Roman Catholicism: the number three, symbolising the Holy Trinity, is apparent everywhere. There are three floors, trefoil windows and three triangular gables on each side. On the entrance front is the inscription �Tres Testimonium Dant� (�there are three that give witness�), a Biblical quotation from St John�s Gospel referring to the Trinity. It is also a pun on Tresham�s name; his wife called him �Good Tres� in her letters.
