Full Description

Summerhouse built in the style of a Moorish temple to overlook the Alhambra Garden, of which very little remains. It may be the only example in the county of this type of summerhouse. In 1974 it was described as being 'reasonably sound structurally'; however, there were problems with fires being lit on the ground floor. (1)
