Summary

A gazebo consisting of an C18 facade re-erected in 1961 by Didier Bertrand.

Description

MATERIALS: ashlar and rubble.

PLAN: a small square structure

EXTERIOR: the facade has an oculus with four keystones each side of an arched central bay with Serlian columns to an entablature with a triglyph frieze and modillion cornice and blocking. Returns and back in rubble.

History

The C18 facade was re-erected here having been moved from its original location in Fairford, Gloucestershire in 1961. It replaced an earlier structure that stood in this location in the late C19.

Reasons for Listing

* Architectural interest: despite its relocation, the retained C18 facade continues to display good quality architectural detailing;
* Group value: it takes a key position in the garden of Widcombe Manor included on the Register of Parks and Gardens at Grade II, and forms an interesting and important group with the Grade I listed Widcombe Manor and the other Grade II listed features in the garden.
