Aviary. Circa 1846 by John Thomas for Sir Morton Peto. Restored c.1984-5.
The north section is a timber framed octagon with domed leaded roof surmounted
by an octagonal turret with swept roof (finial missing at time of survey).
Overhanging eaves supported on wooden brackets at the angles; above are
pierced pinnacles with raised fretwork between. To the south a simple lean-to
section in 3 compartments: behind are boarded partitions with ogee-headed
voids. The aviary abuts the north west corner of the stable court which it
was designed to screen. The surrounding park and gardens are included in the
