1/19 (north side)
Gazebos in gardens of
Nos 7 and 8


Early C18, perhaps linked in mid C19. Red brick. Ashlar dressings. Pyramidal
pantile roofs. Two 2-storey pavilions with plaster coves, ashlar bands and rusticated
ashlar quoins, linked by a 2-storey gallery (which has brick over-sailing courses to
rear). The ground floor of the latter is divided into 4 brick tunnel-vaulted bays
reached through semi-circular arches with rusticated ashlar jambs and voussoirs. The
first floor has an ashlar balustrade with balusters of square plan, and with
umbrella-shaped knobs 1/3 way up; piers with some traces of ornamental carving on
their fronts. Rear of gallery has 4 niches with rusticated ashlar jambs and voussoirs
set against a wall which only reaches up to their impost level. Gallery reached by
doors from first floor of each pavilion, that from No 8's with a 2-centred arch.

History. Although little is known about this unusual building, the property was owned
by the Baynes family from 1679 until 1791. They may well have been built by 1719,
when Richard Baynes' will refers to the burgage as "Cupola Close". The only detailed
C18 map which shows them does not show the link, which is the most unusual feature,
and it might therefore be C19. However, everything about the link (except the
apparently mid C19 doorway from the second floor of No 8's pavilion onto the gallery)
appears to be contemporary with the 2 pavilions. Pending further evidence, the
building history remains a mystery.
