Miller, Sanderson

Miller, Sanderson (1716–80). English amateur architect and connoisseur, he was an important figure in the Georgian Gothic Revival (see also Gothick). He embellished his Manor House at Radway Grange, Warwicks., with Gothic features in 1744–6, and erected an octagonal battlemented and machicolated Gothic Tower at Edgehill, Warwicks. (1745–7). At Hagley Park, Worcs. (1747–8), he designed a ‘ruined’ castle that to contemporaries had the ‘true rust of the Barons’ Wars’, and very soon the Squire of Radway was being consulted as an expert by many anxious to embrace fashionable Gothicizing for their properties. The motif of a two-storey bay-window was used at a number of sites, including Radway, Arbury Hall, Warwicks. (c.1750–2), Adlestrop Park, Glos. (1750–62), and Rockingham Hall, Hagley, Worcs. (1751). The number of buildings where he was involved was considerable, including Lacock Abbey, Wilts. (1754–5—where he advised on the Great Hall and Gothic Gateway), the nave and transepts of Kineton Church, Warwicks. (1755–6), and the sham Castle at Wimpole Hall, Cambs. (1749–51).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
