Sir Thomas Tresham was imprisoned for fifteen years for his Catholic faith. During this time, his belief in the concept of a Holy Trinity grew stronger. Upon release, he designed the Rushton Triangular Lodge on his estate. It is 33 feet long, and has 3 floors and 3 windows on each side. Three Latin texts of 33 letters each are inscribed along the outside walls.
Tresham also designed Lyveden New Bield (bottom), a “secret house” that was never finished.
