Lyvedon New Bield was to have been built as a garden house in the grounds of Lyvedon Bield near Oundle in 1595. The building was designed in the shape of a Greek cross and the exterior incorporates friezes inscribed with religious quotations and signs of the passion. Sir Thomas Tresham died before the building was completed and the shell is now in the care of the National Trust.
