NOTES: Bonomi's proposals for Lambton Hall constitute perhaps his most ambitious project for a country house. Many features of the design derive from his unexecuted design for 'a nobleman's country seat' which he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1785 (RIBA96052- RIBA96053). He prepared three alternative designs (July 1794, August 1794 and February 1795) for the new Hall but with the death of W. H. Lambton in 1796 schemes for complete rebuilding were abandoned and between 1798 and 1802 Bonomi carried out more modest alterations to the existing house. Bonomi's work, if fully executed, was all swept away by Bonomi's son, Ignatius, during the transformation of Lambton Hall into Lambton Castle in the 1820s.

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
