Boughton, Geddington

Entrance lodge along the A43 near Geddington in Northamptonshire.

Boughton House is a former monastic building but transformed into a mansion by the Montagu family since 1528. Ralph Montagu was a former English ambassador to France and Boughton House shows strong French architectural influences in its present palatial Versailles style. Boughton House was little used or altered from the mid-18th century, but was well cared for and has some of the best preserved baroque state rooms in the country.
