Boat house. Circa 1850. Timber-framed with pyramidal metal-covered roof.
Octagonal plan; in a rustic style. Two storeys. Open ground floor with rustic
orcading, open first floor with rustic arcading and balustrade, and roof with
scalloped valencing and wooden finial. Boarded on 3 sides to rear. Interior:
ground floor with brick and stone segmental-arched structure to rear. First
floor walls and roof covered with old printing blocks. Boarded door to rear. The
boat house stands on the north side of the lake in Kiddington Park. It probably
dates from the mid-C19 when much work was carried out at Kiddington Hall (q.v.).
The lake was probably formed in the mid-C18 when Capability Brown made some
alterations to the park.
