Lord-Lieutenant of Lincolnshire
The Lord-Lieutenant of Lincolnshire is the British monarch's personal representative in the county of Lincolnshire. The lord-lieutenant was responsible for organising the county's militia. In 1871, the lord-lieutenant's responsibility over the local militia was removed. However, it was not until 1921 that they formally lost the right to call upon able-bodied men to fight when needed. Since 1660, all lord-lieutenants have been Custos Rotulorum of Lincolnshire; the lord-lieutenancy is now an honorary titular position awarded to a retired notable person in the county. Until 1975, this had been awarded to a peer connected to the county; this is a list of people. The lord-lieutenant selects from their deputy lieutenants one to act as the vice lord-lieutenant during their tenure; this office is not automatically renewed on the appoint of a new lord-lieutenant. The current Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Lincolnshire is Mr C G Rowles Nicholson. Deputy Lieutenants are nominated by the lord-lieutenant to assist with any duties as may be required.
In Lincolnshire, they are appointed by the Lord Chancellor on command of the sovereign.

The Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester is the representative of the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II in the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester in North West England.

Before 1974 the area had been covered by the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire, the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, a small part by the Lord Lieutenant of the West Riding of Yorkshire; the role of the Lord Lieutenant is to "first and foremost... to uphold the dignity of the Crown". The Lord Lieutenant acts as Keeper of the Rolls, it promoted the work of voluntary service and benevolent organisations. The Lord Lieutenant is aided in his office by over 70 Deputy Lieutenants.

Clytha Park, Monmouthshire, is a 19th-century Neoclassical country house, "the finest early nineteenth century Greek Revival house in the county." The wider estate encompasses Monmouthshire's "two outstanding examples of late eighteenth century Gothic", the gates to the park and Clytha Castle. The owners were the Jones family Herbert, of Treowen and Llanarth Court, it is a Grade I listed building. The original house on the site, Clytha House, was built by the Berkeley family of Spetchley Park in Worcestershire, it was subsequently purchased by William Jones the Elder, who constructed the gates and Clytha Castle. His son, William Jones the Younger, from 1862 Herbert, razed the Georgian mansion to the ground and replaced it with the Neoclassical Clytha Park; the Monmouthshire antiquarian Sir Joseph Bradney records that Jones's attempts to change his name to Herbert occasioned a long feud with his near neighbour, Lord Llanover, the Lord Lieutenant of Monmouthshire, who sought to block the change.
Beginning work on his inheritance in 1820, Jones used Edward Haycock Snr. In the 19th century, the house contained the painting, The Deluge by Francis Danby. A service wing at the rear of the house was demolished in 1957. Although owned by the National Trust, the house remains the private residence of the Hanbury-Tenison family and is accessible only by prior written appointment; the wider estate encompasses Monmouthshire's "two outstanding examples of late eighteenth century Gothic", the gates to the park and Clytha Castle. Overlooking the house, on a prominent hill, stands the folly of Clytha Castle, constructed by William Jones the Elder in memory of his wife. Long attributed to John Nash, recent documentary discovery has shown that it was designed by John Davenport, who laid out the grounds, a "well-preserved a late eighteenth century landscape park"; the original canal in the grounds by Davenport was extended in the early 19th century to create the present lake, the spoil from the excavations being used to create a raised platform for the new house.
The park was further developed by Henry Avray Tipping in the early 20th century. On the old Abergavenny-to-Raglan road stand the entrance gates, again reputedly by John Nash, who did undertake work in South Wales. A lodge is set to one side, they are earlier than the house, of 1797. The entry in Mee's The King's England suggests that the gateway came from the ruined mansion of Perth-hir, near Rockfield; the gates have their own Grade II* listing. The architectural historian John Newman considers Clytha, "the finest early nineteenth century Greek Revival house in the county." The building is a square of ashlar with sandstone dressings. It is of two storeys and has a "fine centr sandstone Ionic tetrastyle portico"; the interior is pure Doric, with a circular vestibule leading to a spacious, top-lit, staircase hall. Peter Smith, in his 1975 study, Houses of the Welsh Countryside, describes Clytha as "represent the best of the Greek revival"; the court was designated a Grade I listed building on 1 September 1956.

An administrative county was an administrative division in England and Wales and Ireland from 1888 to 1974, used for the purposes of local government. They are now abolished, although in Northern Ireland their former areas are used as the basis for lieutenancy; the term was introduced for England and Wales by the Local Government Act 1888, which created county councils for various areas, called them'administrative counties' to distinguish them from the continuing statutory counties. In England and Wales the legislation was repealed in 1974, entities called'metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties' in England and'counties' in Wales were introduced in their place. Though inaccurate, these are called'administrative counties' to distinguish them from both the historic counties, the ceremonial counties. In Scotland they were never established as separate entities as they were in Wales. For local government purposes Scottish counties were replaced in 1975 with a system of regions and island council areas.
The Local Government Act 1898 created administrative counties in Ireland on the same model, used in England and Wales. In Northern Ireland the administrative counties were replaced by a system of 26 districts on 1 October 1973. Section 131 of the Local Government Act 1972 stated that "every county and every county borough shall cease to be an administrative area for local government purposes"; the areas of the former administrative counties remain in use for Lieutenancy purposes, being defined as the areas used "for local government purposes before 1 October 1973, subject to any subsequent definition of their boundaries...". In the Republic of Ireland the legislation that created them remained in force until the Local Government Act 2001 was passed, which renamed them'counties'; the administrative counties that did not share the names of previous counties: England Scotland Ross-shire and Cromartyshire Republic of Ireland Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown and South Dublin.
