The building itself has Republican roots, dating back to the period shortly after the English Civil War. After the Restoration of the monarchy, it became the official residence of many Rangers of the Great Park, including Sarah Churchill, first Duchess of Marlborough, and later on, Prince Christian and Princess Helena, the third daughter of Queen Victoria.
The Lodge takes its name from William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and second son of King George II, who was Ranger from 1746.
This year, the national Heritage Open Days festival runs for 10 consecutive days, from 13 to 22 September. You can find out more about other participating venues here.
