Mausoleum, Castle Howard

Mausoleum, Castle Howard


Copyright: ;
Designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor alone, the Mausoleum at Castle Howard was begun in 1731.

Hawksmoor had to use all of his considerable knowledge in arguing against the prevailing architectural

pedants to get the mausoleum built as he wished it to be. He was helped in this by the understanding of

his patron.

Although the stairs were added by Robinson and the platform by Garret, it still stands proud as a

remarkable architectural achievement.
