SK 51 SE
4/69 Gazebo on corner of
garden of No. 173,
next to school.
Gazebo or lock-up probably of C18. Granite and slate rubble stone with pointed
Swithland slate roof. Small circular tower of 2 storeys. Door with slate lintel
and brick surround in base and door, small 1-light openings and tiny
slits above. Generally said locally to be a lock-up, but as there is a
pair at opposite ends of site of Old Swithland Hall, it is more likely that they
are folly boundary towers or gazebos.
