terrace walls and gatepier

(Formerly listed with Buscot Park)


Pavilion (part of country house). Circa 1935 by Geddes Hyslop for 2nd Baron
Faringdon. Limestone ashlar. 7-bay range running parallel with main axis
of mansion (q.v.) has both ends porticoed with 4 Tuscan Doric columns in
antis and roundels in pediments. Longer sides have an additional basement
storey, to east opening to a sunken service court; middle bay, which is
wider and breaks forward below triangular pediment, has an arched carriage
entry rising through both storeys. Ashlar ridge stacks flank central bay.
Stone retaining walls, punctuated by low piers with vases and by flights of
steps, extend around the west and north sides of the north terrace, curving
around a stone basin and statue, and to south ramp up to a raised balustrade
adjoining the panelled northern pier of the south-west gateway to the
forecourt. The walls form part of an elaborate formal landscape scheme
surrounding the mansion. (q.v. also east pavilion and south screen.)
