Summerhouse. Probably c.1860. Rustic wooden post construction with woven
brushwood panels. Pyramidal plain tile roof. Octagonal plan. Rustic
style. One storey. Continuous verandah consisting of posts resting on
sandstone pads and with angle braces. Continuous rustic bench-seating.

entrance to north. Interior: continuous rustic bench-seating around walls.
Central octagonal wooden table with rustic support. Diagonal wooden boarding
on walls and ceiling. Entrance has 3 wooden roller blinds with pelmets.
The boarded interior and the roller blinds are possibly alterations of c.1900
and the summerhouse itself might even date from then. The central light
fitting must date from the early C20. The summerhouse stands in wooded
grounds to the west of Pell Wall (q.v.).
