4/14 Folly or game larder
approximately 200 metres
west of Bilton Hall


Folly or game larder. Late C18. Brown-red brick, stone plinth, thatched
roof. Circular, approximately 6 metres in diameter, and single storey.
Blocked round-arched doorway of raised headers on north side; a similar
opening on the south side enlarged and a wooden lintel inserted. Circular
windows of raised headers on west and east sides, the latter with the wooden
window or ventilator frame surviving. The wall surface is divided into 8
panels by brick pilasters which rise from the plinth and meet a projecting
eaves band. The original purpose is uncertain; it has been used as a deer
or cattle shelter in recent years and stands close to an ice house (not
included in the listing).
