Elizabethan Revival. During the 1830s Elizabethan architecture provided attractive precedents for those in search of a national style: it was associated with a period of great creativity, wealth, and naval and military power, and, unlike Gothic, had no connections with pre-Reformation religion. In 1835 the recommendations for the rebuilding of the Palace of Westminster stipulated that the designs should be either Elizabethan or Gothic, and the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837 prompted hopes of a new ‘Elizabethan’ age. The revival of the style therefore dates from these times: Harlaxton Manor, Lincs. (1831–7), Highclere Castle, Hamts. (1842–9), and Mentmore Towers, Bucks. (1851–4), are good examples of the Revival, which also had occasional manifestations in the USA. A second revival occurred in the 1920s and 1930s, although it drew more on timber-framed and vernacular exemplars for domestic architecture and public-houses.
