George Soudon Bridgeman

George Soudon Bridgeman was an architect and civil engineer active, especially in Torquay, Devon, England, in the late-19th century.

Bridgeman is perhaps best known for his work at Oldway Mansion in Paignton, England. There, for the owner, Mr Isaac Merritt Singer (founder of the Singer Sewing Machine Company Limited), he designed both the mansion and the 'Wigwam', a circular riding and exercising pavillion with a removable wooden floor in the grounds of the estate, in the early-1870s.
