Walnuttree Lane Walnut Tree House garden gazebo

Residential

This brick gazebo c1815 set in an old wall is an unusual garden feature, both decorative and useful. It sits behind Walnut Tree House (next to The Granary) but the wall once marked the boundary of Springfield Lodge in Stour Street. It was a secluded place where the occupants of the Lodge could sit and admire the views across the mill pool. The first four courses of the curved bricks are Roman although it is unclear whether they were reused or already in situ when the gazebo was built. If the latter it is the only evidence of a Roman presence in the town. A watchtower commanding traffic coming up river?
