Roger Morris, (1695-1749) architect, remodelled the original Anglo-Palladian villa designed at Cobham Park by John Bridges. From humble beginnings Morris became a highly influential figure in 18th century architecture, and his practice was highly prestigious. In particular, his designs at Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire (c.1728), and Inveraray Castle in Argyll (begun 1745) were highly unique and influential. A good source about his work is 'The Careers of Roger and Robert Morris' by S. Parissien, 1989.
