The East Boycott Pavilion, Stowe Landscape Garden, Stowe - Aylesbury Vale

One of a pair of large stone pavilions, circa 1728, by James Gibbs, altered by Borra in 1754 to change the steep pyramidal roofs to domes with cupolas. It now incorporates domestic accommodation, but was previously an open-sided belvedere. With its western twin, these pavilions straddle the Oxford Avenue, at the south west of The Course, which is the main approach to the house. Domed roof replacement needed and cupola reinstatment. National Trust plan major repairs and removal of 1950s interiors and conservation of original interior space in 2021-22.
