Lyveden New Bield (or New Build) is a remarkable unfinished Elizabethan building in Northamptonshire, England. The story of the incomplete structure remains unknown, made all the more mysterious by the large labyrinth on the grounds that remained hidden for centuries until it was revealed by World World II Luftwaffe air photos.
New Bield is located on the grounds of the Lyveden Manor House (also known as “Old Bield”), the second home of Sir Thomas Tresham. The exact date of its construction is unknown, but it is usually estimated to be around 1604 to 1605, the year of Tresham’s death.
