West Banquetting House
to Old Campden House
(formerly listed as West
Pavilion to Old Campden
SP 1539 SW 9/68 25.8.60


Circa 1627. Built by Sir Baptist Hicks. Rubble with ashlar dressings and Cotswold
stone roof. One of a pair of pavilions at each end of the great terrace, thus it
is single storey on the terrace front but with a large undercroft revealed on the
other side. The terrace front has a blocked arcade with a small later doorway.
Eleborate pierced parapet. Barley sugar chimneys 2 on the north gable, 3 on the south.
The other elevation has a central projection and 2 attic gables with 2 light stone
mullioned windows. Interior retains fragments of plasterwork and panelling. Plaster-
work includes high quality relief frieze. Wagon-roof structure intact. Unusual
mezanine chamber to rear, very small with fireplace and mysterious access. This
elaborate garden house must reflect the quality of the destroyed mansion.
