6/87 Garden pavilion to the
Gyde Almshouses
Garden pavilion or store. Dated 1913, probably by Sidney Barnsley. Small
square pavilion set into roadside embankment, crowned by pyramidal roof and
approached from road by steps. Coursed and squared limestone, stone slate
roof. At upper level 3 faces have 2-light flush-chamfer mullion casements with
plain glass, the east front with a deep-set plank door. To the road at lower
level a recessed panel with moulded edge inscribed: 'THE GYDE ALMSHOUSES. These
almshouses were endowed and built by Edwin Francis Gyde, 1913'. A simple gate
gives to an enclosing set of steps in square-edged stonework, with three
quarter-landings, contained within embanking dry stone walls. A characteristi-
cally careful detail accompanying the group of 10 almshouses (qq.v).
