Notes NOTES: The house was built by Sanderson for Sir John Conyers although the amateur architects Sir Roger Newdigate and Thomas Prowse appear to have been responsible for the design. This is one of the set of drawings for the fourth alternative design, a rectangular house with central rotunda, long gallery down one side and a hexastyle portico in antis.
