Eastern entrance to Tring Mansion
Eastern entrance to Tring Mansion
From a glance at the map (most clearly seen on the 1:50000) it is obvious that the old main road through Tring used to go directly across the grounds of what is now the Mansion House - and is home to a private school. This track into the Mansion's estate follows that original Roman road, Akeman Street. (Confusingly there is a street in Tring called Akeman Street which actually runs perpendicular to the true Akeman Street !) This house (see SP9211 : The Mansion House, Tring & SP9211 : The Mansion, Tring) was one of several in the area which was owned by the Rothschild banking family. The Mansion House predates the Rothschilds' ownership however as it was originally designed by Sir Christopher Wren, though his original building is entirely obscured by a Georgian fašade.
