Notes NOTES: This octagonal Gothick-style lodge is the more ornate of the two that formerly served Wivenhoe House, built in 1758-1761 by Thomas Reynolds. The house was remodelled by Thomas Hopper and the park relandscaped by William Andrews Nesfield in 1846-1853 and both lodges date from that time. This, the north lodge, marked the former entrance to the park. The estate was sold to the University of Essex in 1962.
