The Gazebo: St Martin’s Church, East Horsley

The Gazebo stands in the southwest corner of the churchyard wall and is decorated with Lovelaces usual architectural extravagances. It is said that when the morning service was due to begin a choirboy would be posted in it so that he could see when his Lordships carriage emerged from the Guildford Lodge gates. Then he had to run back and tell the Rector to be ready to start the service.

The gazebo was restored in 1986 by The Horsley Countryside Preservation Society.
