SK 51 SE
4/70 Gazebo, Walls and Outhouse
on Corner of Road at Hall
1.6.66 (Gazebo)

Gazebo, or lock-up, and walls probably of C18, with C19 outhouse. Gazebo of
granite and slate rubble stone with pointed Swithland slate roof. Small
circular tower of 2 storeys. Door 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. 2 granite and slate rubble
stone walls c3m high extend from gazebo at right angles to each other to
stable (listed separately) and barn of 1750 (listed separately). Attached
to wall near this barn is an outhouse with brick piers and Swithland slate
