9/85 Loggia at south end of
Broad Walk


Loggia, probably circa 1880, by Alfred Waterhouse for 1st Duke of
Westminster. Buff and red sandstone. 3 round arches between Ionic
columns. A blank round arch at each end is flanked by Ionic
pilasters. A full entablature. Simple iron railings to central bay,
with double gates, enclose a Roman altar dedicated by the XX Legion to
the Nymphs and Springs (found in 1821 at a spring near Boughton Cross
which served Deva, and brought to Eaton in 1822). The Loggia, with 2
reconstructed Roman columns (q.v.), was incorporated in Detmar Blow's
redesign of the east garden (1911) as the southern terminal of the
main cross axis; it had replaced a Gothick temple (1822) designed by
William Cole to house the altar (Pevsner and Hubbard).
