NOTES: Bonomi's proposals for Lambton Hall constitute perhaps his most ambitious project for a country house. Many features of the design derive from his unexecuted design for 'a nobleman's country seat' which he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1785 (RIBA96052- RIBA96053). He prepared three alternative designs (July 1794, August 1794 and February 1795) for the new Hall but with the death of W. H. Lambton in 1796 schemes for complete rebuilding were abandoned and between 1798 and 1802 Bonomi carried out more modest alterations to the existing house. Bonomi's work, if fully executed, was all swept away by Bonomi's son, Ignatius, during the transformation of Lambton Hall into Lambton Castle in the 1820s.

Bonomi, Ignatius (1787-1870)
NOTES: Work on Lambton Castle for William Henry Lambton began in the 1790s following the demolition of a previous castle (Lambton Hall) on the site. The new castle was designed by Joseph Bonomi and was enlarged and completed by his son Ignatius. It was castellated and enlarged in about 1833 and later underwent rebuilding in 1854 following severe structural damage caused by mining subsidence. The rebuilding was undertaken by John Dobson and Sidney Smirke.
