Built / Designed For: Robert Middleton
House & Family History: Stone salvaged from the old Trent Bridge in Newark was used to build Eden Hall. The house cost £30,000 (approximately £16 million in 2019 values using the labour value commodity index) and featured a Baptist chapel, a tower with 10 bells and a clock, and a conservatory that once held 2,000 plants. The conservatory was accidentally destroyed in 1942 when a Lancaster bomber exploded on the nearby RAF Syerston airfield (the conservatory was rebuilt in 2005).
Collections: Robert Middleton furnished his new house with furniture from the recently destroyed Tuileries Palace.
