NOTES: The design to the left for this carriage arch and lodge is based on the Arch of Titus in Rome. The design to the right, the Porte de Peyrou built to glorify Louis XIV, was completed in 1693 (erected by Augustin-Charles d'Aviler to designs by Francois d'Orbay) but bas relief panels and inscriptions were added in 1715. These come from a sketchbook put together by Ambrose Phillipps containing measured drawings and engravings of French and Roman buildings as well as designs for the house and garden buildings at Garendon Park, Leicestershire, the compiler's home.
