ST72SW HENSTRIDGE CP INWOOD 3/90 The Summer House, 50 metres North-West of Inwood House GV II Summerhouse. Late C19. Brick core building, colourwashed, with ornate wrought iron outer piers; sheet copper roof. Octagonal plan, in a mid-European style. Solid portion to North half, with door glazed almost Chippendale style; front portion an open area on raised step with openwork piers carried past roofline to finials, with overthrows which shape roof edge between piers; roof curves up to a small onion dome with cast iron finial. Reminiscent of the Regency Brighton pavilion, it was in fact by an Italian brought to England especially in the late C19 by the Merthyr Guest family, who built/rebuilt Inwood. Part of a larger estate with many good collected items; the main house, of 1881, is of lesser interest and not listed.
