ST 78 SE HORTON

8/69 Ambulatory, 20 yards south west 17.9.52 of Horton Court G.V. I

Ambulatory or garden loggia. Circa 1527-29, for William Knight, Prothonotary to the Holy See, and later Bishop of Bath and Wells. Rubble and freestone; Cotswold stone slate roof. Perpendicular Gothic but in the form of a Renaissance garden loggia. 6 bay arcade facing east; octagonal piers with moulded caps and pedestals, chamfered 4-centred arches. Buttresses with set-offs at north and south ends. Inside on the west wall are 4 coarse stucco medallions in a classical style, including Nero and Hannibal. Knight went to Rome in 1527 to act for Henry VIII in his divorce case and it is thought that he observed such structures in Italy. (C. Hussey, Cour.try Life, 30.I.32).
