to stone cross, flanked by pinnacled Gothick panelled buttresses, and with ogee-
headed cusped openings flanking a similar door opening with half round pilasters
approached by 7+2 stone steps. The window openings have stone seat at sill

single cusped opening. Left half has coved ceiling, and a cusped-arch door
leads through to the right, which has a small fireplace leading to a cross-roll
saddle flue. One of a group of garden buildings in an important surviving
rococo ensemble.
