SP 61 NE WOTTON UNDERWOOD WOTTON HOUSE
3/174 Rustic Summerhouse
Garden building. Probably early C19, though much rebuilt, and moved off its columns in the water to the bank in the 1960s. Timber with patterned log panels, hipped
thatch roof. Small square building in rustic style with overhanging
eaves roughly supported on posts. One side was formerly on the very edge
of the lake and has a wide overhang, probably used to shelter boat. This
side also has a door with patterned log panel, and a window over a similar
panel. Another board door to rear.
The historic designed landscape surrounding an early-C18 country house, with a contemporary layout, probably by George London and Henry Wise, developed into an extensive mid-C18 park for George Grenville by Lancelot Brown; William Pitt, later first Earl of Chatham, is credited with significant input with regard to the design.
