Madingley Hall Lodge Cottage & Bridge
Madingley Hall Lodge Cottage & Bridge
Two Grade II listed structures in 1 shot! Well, almost every structure within Madingley Hall estate is listed. For details of The Lodge see LinkExternal link & the Bridge see LinkExternal link . The bridge is in fact sham as can be seen from my photo. It doesn't bridge a stream, merely the end of the lake & so has no second portal.
Madingley Hall

Madingley Hall is a mid C16th manor house considerably rebuilt in the C18th in the Jacobean style. In 1756 the formal gardens were swept away by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown & the grounds landscaped in the then-fashionable style. In 1861 the Hall was used briefly by the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) while he was studying at the University. There are tales of him being seen walking the local lanes and footpaths. In 1948 the Hall and grounds were acquired by the University of Cambridge, and it is now home to the University’s Institute of Continuing Education, and also used for conferences and as a wedding venue. Grade I listed.
