Listing Text

5169 (West Side)
The Gazebo at
Somersall Hall
SK 3569 8/47 13.3.68.


Early C17. Square, coursed rubble with coped gable to each side. Parapet with
ball finials at corners and at apex of roof. Rear part rebuilt in Brick. No windows
to ground floor except front which also has a blocked door. Upper floor has a
3 light mullioned window each side wth a continuous dripmould. This appears to
be a very good example of a typical Jacobean gazebo. It is sometimes said, however,
that this building was originally part of the house and that, therefore, its use
as a gazebo is a later adaptation. This point remains unproven.
