East Banquetting House
of Old Campden House
(formerly listed as
East Pavilion to
Old Campden Manor)
SP 1539 6/66 25.8.60


Between 1612 and 1627. For Sir John Baptist Hicks. One of a pair flanking
Old Campden House. Similar fretted Flemish-inspired Baroque. Fine quality ashlar
with Cotswold stone roof. Main storey is to grand terrace, 2 storeys below, the
lower one vaulted. Pierced strapwork parapet and corner pinnacles with strapwork
panels and spiral chimney columns with cut-finials. Cut finials to saddle-stones.
Five bays, arcaded (part blocked) with jewel-motif imposts, centre larger with
original panelled door having radial panelling in the tympanum. The side arcades
had flat balustrades (blocked). Steps up to small stone balustraded balcony on
north side. Perpendicular-inspired windows to north, and east sides of main floor,
3 light mullioned windows with continuous string to lower floors. Two stepped
buttresses to north.Tudor arch doorways. Partly restored circa 1900, but in poor
condition at time of resurvey. A rare and important survival of early C17 country
house life and of this exurberant style of architecture.
