The clear relationship of this design with surviving Roman ruins closely observed by Grand Tour and Roman trained architects of the time is scarcely better exemplified than in this design, which immediately recalls the Baths of Caracalla and the then more complete remains in the Forum. The apsed basilican form used here is seen in a scarcely less impressive setting in the Marble Hall of 1783, at Kedleston, Derbyshire, and at the famous hall at Holkham in Norfolk, by Kent of 1759, as inspired by the antique 'Egyptian halls'.
