1/182 Bowling Green Pavilion
approximately 100 metres south of
Pavilion. 1889-1905 by Thomas Mawson. Granite ashlar, more rubbley on the lesser
Plan and description: pavilion in a simple classical style like a loggia. It faces
north-east, built across the hillslope and terraced into it. 3-bay arcade of plain
round-headed arches on square-section piers interrupting a dripcourse at impost
level. Each end wings break forward with similar round-headed arches in shallow
square-headed recesses each front end. These end arches lead to steps rising over
changing rooms each end of the arcade. Paved balcony on the top with an open
balustrade with turned balusters identical to those used on the parapet over the
hall of Wood House (q.v.).
This pavilion is part of an extensive landscaping scheme conceived by Mawson to go
with the rebuilding of Wood House (q.v.). Mawson himself considered the whole
scheme as one of his major achievements.
