The Clapham Orangery was built in 1793 and designed by Dr William Burgh of York.
The Orangery was part of a landscape estate belonging to the Thorntonn Family that included a lake and landscaped gardens.
The Orangery is built of portland stone with large capitals constructed out of coade. Decorated with swags of roses, fir cones and leaves, the entablature contains a quotation from Virgil.
