Formerly known as: Conservatory at Wollaton Hall Wollaton.
Camellia house. Dated 1823. By Sir Jeffry Wyatville. Heating
equipment and possibly cast-ironwork, by Harrison of Derby.
Cast-iron structure with fully glazed walls and roofs, and
brick rear walls, rendered. Single storey; 10 bays. Polygonal
plan. Fully glazed walls with glazing bars, divided by
cast-iron Doric columns topped with urns, and cornice with
breaks. East end wall, rendered, with a window in a
round-arched recess under a pediment. North end similar, with
cast-iron double doors and parapet.
INTERIOR is divided by paths flanked by slender cast-iron
columns with lotus-leaf capitals. Over the paths, sheet iron
segmental vaults. The remainder of the roof is hipped. At the
rear, a recess with glazed half-dome, flanked by smaller
niches and freestanding Classical sculptures. 2 similar
figures at the south end, one to north.
This is an early example of a camellia house, and of iron and
glass construction. The camellia was introduced to Europe
