View of the mausoleum at Trentham Park. Although the mansion has been demolished, this mausoleum survives across the road from the main gates. It was built in 1807-8 to a design by French architect Charles Heathcote Tatham. As the printed notes explain, it was erected on the instruction of the Marquis of Stafford, by the side of a main road (according to Roman custom) and in a style similar to that of an ancient pyramid.
