The "Gazebo": Mildred's watch tower in Oak Wood
The "Gazebo": Mildred's watch tower in Oak Wood
This structure can be seen in TG1342 : Gazebo, Sheringham Park. For view, to north, see TG1064 : Coast view and an offshore windfarm, from the Gazebo.
Opened in 1988 and officially named the Gazebo, it's rustic construction and ex-military setting (see pill-box TG1342 : Face at the window of the restored pill-box in Oak Wood) are more reminiscent of a watch-tower, and for me that's a more evocative name. Anyway thank you Mildred Cordeaux for your wonderful gift.
Cannot really say it was donated since it arrived by helicopter, the frame being flown in by the R.A.F. in 1987.
Construction is English Oak, appropriate for its setting in Oak Wood.
All local construction:
Main Contractor: H. Bullen and Son Ltd., Cromer;
Steelwork: North Walsham Engineering Co. Ltd.;
Project Engineers: Fordham Johns Partnership, Norwich.
Designed by C. J. Appleton, Regional Building Manager, The National Trust.
