The Gazebo abouT 10 m north-west
of Church Farmhouse


Gazebo. Probably C18. Local lias stone cut and squared with Doulting ashlar quoins; pyramidal roof with plain clay
tiles and ridge-tile hips. Two-level, square on plan. Plinth base; west window, partly bricked up, has beaded surround;
doors to basement and upper ground flow on north side, both boarded; small lower extension on south side, and link
wall to Church Farmhouse (qv) about 2 m high. Interior not seen. Previously described on provisional list as a granary,
but is really too small; the south extension said to be a privy - all very unusual in a farmhouse context, but it
appears there was C18 rivalry in grandeur between this farmstead and Charity Farmhouse (qv). (VAG Report, unpublished
