Notes NOTES: Built in 1769-72 by James Wyatt, the Pantheon - a popular entertainment building - stood on Oxford Street, London. It was disassembled in 1938 and the stones of the facade numbered for re-use in Edward James' house in West Dean, as designed by Nicholson. The scheme was never executed however.
