Ashridge House in the late 18th century.

This print of Ashridge Abbey, publisher details unknown, is probably from about 1780, and corresponds in shape with the house shown on Dury and Andrews Map of Hertfordshire in 1766. The current house is the result of a rebuild by the Duke of Bridgewater in the first years of the 19th century. The map shows the house actually lay across the Herts/Bucks county boundary.
