8/69 Ambulatory, 20 yards south west 17.9.52 of Horton Court G.V. I

Ambulatory or garden loggia. Circa 1527-29, for William Knight, Prothonotary to the Holy See, and later Bishop of Bath and Wells. Rubble and freestone; Cotswold stone slate roof. Perpendicular Gothic but in the form of a Renaissance garden loggia. 6 bay arcade facing east; octagonal piers with moulded caps and pedestals, chamfered 4-centred arches. Buttresses with set-offs at north and south ends. Inside on the west wall are 4 coarse stucco medallions in a classical style, including Nero and Hannibal.
