1914. Son of the hymnist Edward Benson, A.C. Benson was a well-known poet. He wrote the Coronation Ode for Edward VII's coronation in 1902. The Orchard Pavilion is one of his novels and begins: It was the pavilion which had first attracted Roderick Armitage to the place; he had caught a sight of its slender stone chimney, with the queer pierced ornament at the top, above the flowering apple-trees. Roderick had a pleasant taste for the style and aspect of houses, and saw beauties of proportion and material where many people could see none. It was in one of his undergraduate vacations, and he was rambling about the Cotswolds alone-that was one of his fancies.
