Grotto in the garden
of Knowle Grange (Flats)
including rockery, pool,
vase, pedestal and summerhouse
SY 1287 1/220 12.10.51.
(Knowle Grange is a modern block of flats). The garden was originally
part of the grounds of Knowle Cottage (see Knowle, Sidmouth Urban District
Offices, Station Road) and retains a grotto dating from the early C19,
probably due to Mr Fish. It has a layout of paths, bays and circular
spaces surrounded by rockeries of rustic stone. A pedestal with vase
forms the central feature of one enclosure, an oval pool lined with pebbles
of another. Axial to these at the south end is a semi circular summerhouse
with vaulted roof. It is lined with rose quartz, picked out with a design
of black pebbles. A wooden bench with trellis back runs round the interior.
Picturesque. Curiosity value.
