A curious triangular building using 2-inch thick bricks, erected by the same family which built Longford Castle, also triangular. Begun in 1619 as a hunting lodge, it points outwards like a figure 'Y' and has 18th century extensions added to the 'Y' wings, thus accentuating its outstretched profile.

NEWHOUSE AND NELSON RELICS.: A brick Jacobean Trinity House, around 1609 with two Georgian wings and set in extensive grounds. A collection of Nelson relics including his wooden cot from when he was a child and various items of tableware marked HN or N.
