The Land on which The Lanterns is built was purchased from William Duke of Devonshire in May 1876, and the building itself completed around 1890.

Situated on Marlborough Road in central Buxton, in a conservation area known as The Park which is lined with lime and sycamore trees, this is one of the later areas of Devonshire Park to have been developed.

The gentle curve of Marlborough Road is typical of the layout of streets within the second half of the 19th Century. Given this street pattern, there are occasional glimpses of the lanterns on the top of the dome at The Devonshire Royal Campus. This is what gave inspiration to the name – The Lanterns.

This part of Buxton is dominated by the work of two architects – Robert Rippon Duke and W. R. Bryden, both of whom practiced locally for many years. Many of the historic ‘villas’ are extremely good examples of their types, with little subsequent alteration.  The different styles of the two architects can be distinguished.
