Designs for a real (or royal) tennis court, Lambton Hall, County Durham: section from south to north

RIBA96281
Bonomi, Joseph (1739-1808)
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.

Designs for alterations and additions to Middleton Park, Oxfordshire, for the 5th Earl of Jersey: plan of stables, tennis court and riding house

RIBA96572
Cundy, Thomas (1765-1825)
NOTES: On this plan the note for the tennis court indicates the design is based on the real (or royal) tennis court in James Street, Haymarket, London. See RIBA66794 and RIBA68593 for drawings of that court. This drawing is from a small sketchbook serving as a record of work by Thomas Cundy between 1795 and 1820 apparently made by his son, Thomas Cundy junior, who worked in his practice and took over the practice at his father's death.
