Listing Text

9/22 Garden wall of Denton House.
18/07/63 (Formerly listed as Denton
House with garden wall and
gateway to road)

Garden wall. Late C17/early C18 and mid C18 with mid-C17 features.
Limestone rubble with some ashlar dressings and brickwork. Earlier section
runs from north of the house along part of the east side and around the north
and west sides of the garden. It is 2.5 to 3m high and has a tapering coursed-
rubble coping. Set into the wall are Gothic Survival windows of c.1665 by the
mason John Jackson, brought from Brasenose College, Oxford in 1844-5. On the
north is a large 5-light window with oval wheel tracery under a pointed arch,
formerly the east window of the chapel. On the west are 6 round-headed
windows of cusped lights from the library. The south wall has a flat coping.
Immediately south of the house begins a mid-C18 section which returns
northwards to the front. It is of banded rubble and ashlar with a brick
lining in Flemish bond. Opposite the main (south) front of the house, also
immediately north in the east wall, are mid-C18 doorways with 3-centre
arched heads and moulded architraves with key-blocks. The main gateway in the
east wall, immediately south of the house, is probably late C17. It has a
3-centred arch in a rectangular surround with key-block and imposts which
continue over flanking pilasters; above is an open segmental pediment with
a central cartouche and pedestal.
