This is amazing. I just gazed up at it in awe. It’s quite incredible the way it is built and everything is in sets of 3.
It’s only open a few days a year so you have to look at the website as it’s worth going inside for the views.
The problem is parking. There is only one lay-by opposite. You can probably get about 6 cars in it but if it’s full not sure where you would park as it’s just a country lane.
Very nice scenery around it and a guy there who was very informative.
Worth a trip..

Whilst some may look over this property, regarding it as too small to warrant a visit, it is well worth a visit. Here, the guidebook is extremely useful, as it explains in detail all of the symbolism on the building. It is really the exterior which is the main attraction; a brave assertion of faith built by Sir Thomas Tresham in defiance of the protestant reign of Elizabeth I. The number 3 is everywhere; whether it be the trefoil windows or the amount of gables. Indeed, it is a good deal of fun to decode the building to uncover its secret message. Inside, it is very plain and unfurnished; there are three floors accessed by a narrow spiral staircase. If you want a good view of the basement, be sure to take a torch as it is almost pitch black. But otherwise, be curious and visit this place - you won't regret it.

Having stayed at Rushton Hall it was only a short drive to Rushton Triangle. Parking was a little difficult as there is no car park and only a few places to park up on the country road. The building itself is certainly well worth a visit just for the uniqueness of this historic 3 sided building with its carvings and hidden subliminal messages. There is nothing fancy about the interior of the building. Acesss is via a stone staircase to the first floor so it may be difficult for people with limited mobility.

Had a great visit to this very unique landmark. Your guide Nick Brown was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and really made our visit so much the better. Highly recommended a visit if you are interested in local history.

Parking in the layby opposite you go through a small gate into what seems a secret garden. This folly though small is very interesting. With some lovely brickwork and windows.

Catholic imagery, Father of one of the Gunpowder Plotters. Alan Moore's Voice of Fire. No loo though. (: Limited parking on the opposite side of a narrow road. Be careful crossing. Not open Monday and Tuesday. Another good use of English Heritage membership.

Strange, weird, at times dreary. Suggestive the history of the Triangular Lodge, a place rich in charm and mystery. Lost in the countryside around Rushton, this place filled with symbolism and history is a key step, you can see it in a short time and let yourself rest for a while before resuming.

Yes there is nothing inside and yes if you don't have a guide or read up you won't get it.
The truth is the meaning, the time and who.
Living locally what the guide won't tell you is that there are tunnels running from the pub and the hall to Rothwell. Escape routes for Catholics and priests for this is the time of Elizabeth 1st and plotting against her.
This building needs to be part of a day taking in Rothwell Town Hall and charnel house ( one of only a few in Britain)
Coffee at the Store in Rothwell is good for refreshments and a loo stop.

Cost £3.50 to go in as it's a National Heritage place. Not really worth going in but worth paying so that they NH do the up-keep. It's really interesting, where else will you see a triangular building with everything in threes? Well worth visiting.
