A real gem in the Northamptonshire comutryside. Garden and lodge created by Sir Thomas Tresham but he was never to see it completed. Now it’s just as it was when the money ran out and the builders packed. Very interesting tale of secret Catholic worship...More

We visited Lyveden last weekend on a drizzly Sunday.The site is in a very flat,open topography which is very quiet and peaceful-making it feel as though we were the only human beings for miles. Great welcome at the entrance point and we opted for the...More

I've been visiting Lyveden since a young age and have never grown tired of it. It's a fantastic place for people of all ages and interests. The monument is unique and fun to explore, the field around it occasionally hosts family-friendly pantomimes and theatrical groups...More

Such an atmospheric site when it's quiet or just as the sun goes down. The building is unfinished and inspiring with its relationship to the cross. The surrounding grounds being reconstructed to Elizabethan plans is interesting as is the water course. The tea rooms are...More
