Palm house. c1824 by Decimus Burton as part of a continuous group with the

villa. Glass and iron on brick plinth with a flight of stone steps and backed
by a tendered wall. The iron and glass frame forms quarter-ellipsed with
close-set glazing bars of umbrella-like construction, carved on 3 concentric
T-section purlins each supported at intervals by standards. Glazed barred

first experiments in the structural use of iron and glass.
