Listing Text

4/63 Walls enclosing garden with south
terrace, about 100 m south-west
of Chipley Park
Walls enclosing garden with terrace. Probably C17 in origin, C18 brick work, Red brick
Flemish bond, flat sandstone coping, random rubble splayed base to terrace, brick
parapet. Plan: roughly square with raised terrace on west front where land drops away
steeply below, central curved projecting bay. Walls ramped down on west side with
central gateway, about 3m high on north side with semi-circular headed doorway in
north-east corner, about 2 m high on south side. The bastion-like tile terrace on the
west front forms an impressive landscape feature. The tithe map shows the original C17
Chipley Park (now demolished) projecting through the east wall and this area is
presumably part of the original C17 garden layout.
