GV II

Summer house. Dated 'T.B. 1841' by Thomas Baker for himself. Coursed rubble limestone; reused Roman stone slates and clay pantile roof. Two-storey. East facing gable end incorporates many Roman bricks set in bands and square Roman clay tiles, some diagonally reset. Off-centre doorway with 6-panel door and stone lintel. Central upper floor sash window with Gothick glazing bars. Small-paned fixed-light on south side; sash with Gothick glazing bars above. Flight of stone steps on north side leading to upper level doorway to rear. Lower part of roof slope re-uses Roman stone slates, hung in diagonal manner. Thomas Baker was responsible for investigating the Lillyhorn Roman villa near Bournes Green, many finds going to the British Museum, much being incorporated into the structure of this building - its purpose to display a more extensive collection of Roman artefacts. (N.M. Herbert, 'Bisley' in V.C.H. Glos. xi, 1976, pp 4-40; and D. Verey, Gloucestershire: The Cotswolds, 1979)
