Tudor doorway and trefoil window, Canons Ashby 3D Model
MOLA archaeologists have been carrying out a detailed recording of Canons Ashby House. This sixteenth century country house in rural Northamptonshire began as a modest farm house and was gradually enlarged and altered by successive members of the Dryden family resulting in the jumbled architecture seen today. As well as traditional drawn and photographic survey techniques the archaeologists have carried out a complete laser survey of the house and photogrammetric models have been produced of several features.
This stone doorway with its Tudor arch and deeply moulded jambs appears to have been added by Henry Dryden, a noted antiquarian who in the 1840s moved the main entrance of the house from the west range to the Pebble Court. The adjacent trefoil or bullseye window could well be a remnant of the former medieval priory and was also added by Henry Dryden.
