building of 2 storeys and 1 window, faced with flints. Parapet. 2 ogival
headed open arches, on each of the long sides, give entrance to a grotto-like
chamber paved with pebbles, brick and bones set in a geometrical pattern.
The walls are faced with shells and spar. Pillars support a ceiling of imitation
stalactites made of felspar and tufa. On the outside of the building to the
