MASCo still has on site a magnificent rotunda constructed of Portland Stone dated 1907, in very good condition with wonderful patination. This piece was originally a Vcitorian folly to disguise Gosport Water Company’s pumping station in Soberton, Hampshire, England.
Constructed in Portland Stone, the rusticated and boasted face stonework and planted colonnade support the doomed roof. Carved text around the Rotunda reeds ‘Gosport Waterworks Company Reservoir, Shedfield, 1907′.
It would be ideal for a grand garden vista, simple folly, a wedding chapel or a viewing point, and would be a beautiful building to own.
It has been reconstructed for viewing at MASCo’s Minchinhampton yard. Why not come along and have a look and you might even find something smaller and more practical to help with the renovation and restoration of your home.
