The Archer Pavilion, Wrest Park
"The Banqueting House - This is the earliest surviving structure in the gardens. It was built by Thomas Archer (1668-1743) for the Duke of Kent (1671-1740) between 1709 and 1711. It is Grade I Listed and lies due south of the mansion at the far end of the central canal. It is built of red brick, with stone dressings and has lead covering the dome and gables. The Banqueting House is built in the Baroque style. It consists of a domed circular block, from which three pedimented blocks project, alternating with three circular blocks. A basement runs under the whole building and was the kitchen." (from 'Buildings at Wrest Park', Bedfordshire Archives and Records Service - q.v. for more information)
