SU 92 SE PETWORTH PETWORTH HOUSE

9/773 Boathouse, Upper Pond

II


Boathouse. Probably part of 'Capability' Brown's designs for Petworth Park c.1756.
It was certainly in existence by 1810 as it is shown in a Turner painting of Petworth
Park of that date. Consists of a stone boathouse having 2 elliptical arches at water
level with massive keystone with Neptune bar relief probably salvaged from the Fount
House of 1694. Above is a viewing platform with seat overlooking the lake. This has
a round-headed arched doorway. The rear wall slopes down to level of the springing
of the arches.
