The central ‘Tribune’ has high half-circle windows (around the dome seen in the photo above), used later by Sir John Soane, a free-thinker with Masonic connections, to admit light but maintain privacy, as at the Bank of England (drawing below). However, I cannot detect any Masonic associations in Leyton Grange, and know of none for Gansel.
