8/137 Summer House
approximately 150 metres
4.2.69 south west of Gillingwood Hall


Summerhouse. Early-mid C18. For the Wharton family. Coursed rubble and
ashlar sandstone, Westmorland and Welsh slate roofs. T-shaped plan, set
into hillside, 2 storeys with basement at front, 3 bays. North-east front:
central bay projects slightly. Basement: coursed rubble in banded
rustication. Upper section: ashlar. Central aedicule bay with 4 unfluted
Roman Doric columns carrying full entablature and pediment. On each side a
shell niche with sill band, and blind opening above. Cornice. Hipped
Westmorland slate roof. Rear: narrower range in coursed rubble; quoins;
central bay is open, with apsidal rear wall; 2 shell niches flanking brick
oculus in open pediment; Westmorland slate roof. The summerhouse is set at
a higher level than the site of Old Gillingwood Hall, and from it there is
an impressive view to the north-east. It is set into the hillside, and
behind it is a quarry which presumably provided the stone to build Old
Gillingwood Hall and its outlying buildings.
