The Hermitage, Manor Gardens II

Gazebo to Manor House (qv). Late C18. Rendered brick (now pebble-dashed); thatched roof. Octagonal symmetrical comparison in Gothic style. Single-storey. Brick plinth from which there rise, on each of the 5 front bays, ogee-arched wooden architraves with crescent finials and flanking quatrefoil panels. 2 stone steps up to doorway (door removed), the architrave having pilasters with strings and plain capitals. The openings to the 2 flanking bays on each side have panelled bases and bottom-hinged shutters (removed from left-hand bays) which conceal ogee-headed sashes with decorative glazing bars, the glazing bars mostly removed. The 3 rear bays each have a bow with semi-conical thatched roof (thatch mostly removed). Wooden eaves cornice. Roof surmounted by spiked and petalled, swept, finial. Interior: board lining with plinth, dado rail and cornice; an ogee-arched architrave to each side, the 3 rear sides with alcoves; at top of each side a moulded bush garland descends from ribband and drapes over floral medallions. In state of dereliction at time of inspection. The gazebo was built either for the Rev H Lushington who built Manor House shortly before 1777, or for C Gilbert who purchased the house in 1792. A colour-wash drawing of the gazebo was made by T Poppleton during the first decade of the C19.
