Set in a landscaped park, The Grange at Northington, Hampshire, is the foremost example in England of Greek Revival architecture.

The mansion owes its present appearance to the architect William Wilkins, who, between 1809 and 1816, transformed a modest 17th century brick building into something more like an Ancient Greek temple. Literally wrapping the house in cement, Wilkins added classical façades, including the striking temple front supported on eight gigantic columns. Public outcry saved The Grange from demolition in 1975 and it is now used as an opera venue.
