(b. 1719, Arbury, d. 1806, Arbury)

Dining room and hall

Arbury Hall, Warwickshire

Sir Roger Newdigate rebuilt his country seat of Arbury Hall into one of the finest, though less well-known, Gothic monuments. It was a project that took 50 years to complete. Work began in 1748, and proceeded gradually. Newdigate opted for a specific medieval structure as a model, the opulently decorated Perpendicular Henry VII Chapel in Westminster Abbey.
