Notes NOTES: John Carr of York designed the Palladian Basildon Park for Sir Francis Sykes (1776-1783). The interiors were never completed during Sykes's time and when the family later sold the house in 1838 the new owner, James Morrison, commissioned Papworth to complete and upgrade the interiors as well as design alterations to the lodges and stables and design new estate buildings. The lodges on the main approach, to the north-east of the house and designed by Carr, are known as the Oxford Lodges.
