SD3317NE PROMENADE 664-1/9/156 (West side) Lakeside Inn


Small public house. Probably built between 1892, when the north portion of the Marine Lake was added (or 1895, when the 2 lakes were joined) and 1913, when King George V opened the new lake and gardens. Timber-framed with panelled boarded walls and red tiled roof and ridge tiles with a finial near the end of each ridge. Small rectangular plan, built into north angle between the Boathouse (which it adjoins) and the Promenade. EXTERIOR: 2-storey structure presenting only the upper storey to the Promenade (the lower storey built against the face of the embankment); 3 bay loggia with wooden posts carrying an oversailing roof with projected gabled centre, protecting a small area with benches; pierced bargeboarding to the gable.

Under the loggia the recessed front wall of the enclosed main range has geometrical framing. The roof is hipped at each end but with a gable breaking through. INTERIOR: not inspected. Forms group with the Boathouse (qv) and with the Cafe on the lakeside approx. 30m to the south-west (qv).
