The recreated rustic summerhouse at the top of the Italian steps. It is possible to see the deterioration of the heather thatched roof which led to re-roofing in Norfolk reed in 2008 (see PGPT090).
The 1886 photograph of the summerhouse which the modern manufacturers used to make the reproduction can be seen in PGPT
The reconstruction was made in 2003, but unfortunately the heather roof, which copied the original material, deteriorated and had to be changed during 2007.
On the back wall inside was placed a copy of the poster visible in the 1886 photograph (see PGPT007) and on the side wall an information panel mostly about the family.
