19/126 Summerhouse approx.
- 9 metres to south-
west of Oakmead

- II

Summerhouse, now garden store. Circa 1735. Red brick (some gauged) with yellow/grey
sandstone ashlar dressings; hipped plain tile roof. Square plan. Moulded
plinth and chamfered raised quoins. Blocked side windows with gauged
heads; inserted C20 window to east. Boarded door to north and segmental-
headed boarded door to south. The summerhouse appears formerly to have
had an open front to the south (see straight joints and later C18 brickwork).
The summerhouse stands at the north end of the bowling green at the
rear of The Elephant and Castle Hotel (q.v.) but at time of survey (January
1986) it is separated from it by a new road. Oakmead is not included on
this list.
