Lydiard House, Lydiard Park - Swindon
This beautiful Palladian house in its stunning setting within Lydiard Park featured in two Heritage Open Days during the weekend of Sat/Sun 8/9th September 2012. Lydiard House was once the ancestral home of the St John family, the Viscounts Bolingbroke, whose impressive monuments dominate St Mary's church of Lydiard Tregoze. In 1743 the former Elizabethan manor house was remodelled in the Palladian style by the 2nd Viscount, John St John, who also created the landscaped gardens and ornamental lake. In 1943 after the house and estate fell into disrepair, it was purchased by Swindon Corporation along with 143 acres of parkland, ending 500 years of ownership by the St John family. Grade I listed.
