Newmillerdam Boathouse


This rather fancy structure, on Newmillerdam lake, was built in the 1820s by the Pilkington family, who owned the surrounding Chevet estate. It was used as a hunting lodge. It is Grade II listed and has since been restored as a visitor centre and meeting rooms (though not open when I went past). It looks kind of flooded but I think that's how it's meant to be.

  1. I suppose you could sit and fish out of the window. Very civilised!

  2. Looks like there is a nice deck up top there!
