Trent Park House (back)
Trent Park, Middlesex

Trent Park House was first built by Royal Physician Richard Jebb, who was awarded the estate in 1777 by King George III. Subsequent owners expanded the house further until the time of Sir Philip Sassoon, the last major owner during the first half of the 20th Century. The house was then used as an interogation centre during the Second World War, and then became an education centre, until of Middlesex Polyechnic in 1974. It is a Grade II listed building.

29 Apr 2014: In 2013 the site of the former Middlesex University, which includes the mansion house, was sold to Malaysia?s Allianze University College of Medical Sciences. Access to the site is currently prohibited, and it isn't clear if this will change in the future.

How to get here from Trent Park: Obelisk:

Trivia note: the two are implied to be running away from the school in the episode, but in reality they are running towards the mansion!

Where to walk to next?

»

Trent Park House (front) (Mawdryn Undead). From the balcony walk around the side of the house to the front.

»

Trent Park: Obelisk (Mawdryn Undead). Walk down to the lakeside and then follow it clockwise until you reach the main path. Head right along this path, and then head across the field north to the passageway leading up to the obelisk.

Production Notes:

»

The characters are seen running back and forwards across the field between the obelisk and the mansion, whereas in reality there is a big lake spanning the bottom of the hill (unseen on screen).
