probably a copy of a Roman model. Tall single storey on basement.
Rusticated base with segmental openings to basement. Eight steps to sealed,
rendered and lined doorway in architrave: scrolled brackets to projecting

MDCCCXVIII". Around the building are 8 Doric pilasters dividing it into bays:
each alternate bay blind. Other bays have projecting panels with cornice
and blocking course carrying sarcophagi in low relief: above are ventilation
holes in sunk corniced panels. Frieze of triglyphs and guttae: Doric
cornice, blocking course, and stepped ashlar dome. The building is enclosed
by a circular flagged area defined by a dwarf wall, once carrying iron
railings (now removed).
