Details

SJ 4160 EATON C.P. EAST GARDEN TO HALL Eaton Park

9/85 Loggia at south end of Broad Walk

GV II

Loggia, probably circa 1880, by Alfred Waterhouse for 1st Duke of Westminster. Buff and red sandstone. 3 round arches between Ionic columns. A blank round arch at each end is flanked by Ionic pilasters. A full entablature. Simple iron railings to central bay, with double gates, enclose a Roman altar dedicated by the XX Legion to the Nymphs and Springs (found in 1821 at a spring near Boughton Cross which served Deva, and brought to Eaton in 1822). The Loggia, with 2 reconstructed Roman columns (q.v.), was incorporated in Detmar Blow's redesign of the east garden (1911) as the southern terminal of the main cross axis; it had replaced a Gothick temple (1822) designed by William Cole to house the altar (Pevsner and Hubbard).
