Garden pavilions, fountain,
stairways and terrace on South
side of Quantock Lodge


Two garden pavilions, fountain, stairways and an elevated terrace forming a pleasance on the south side of Quantock
Lodge. Mid/late C19. Pavilions face each other across a level formal garden; ashlar, balustraded parapets, gargoyles,
domed lead roofs with elaborate finials; each square on plan, large 2-light mullioned and transomed windows, set
together so that walls are virtually all of windows; central doorways, with ogee-shaped canopies, to west plank doors
with medievalising ironwork, to east half-glazed doors; a flight of steps down from each. On south between pavilions
the ground rises; terrace with pierced stone parapet and flight of curving stone steps to each side; fountain with
circular bowl set under an archway, Latin text above; further flight of steps leading onto formal garden. Pavilion to
west with chapel wing at rear, now theatre; much altered and not of special interest.
