Steps and retaining walls. 1939, by Sir Edwin Lutyens as part of an unexecuted
scheme for a cloister. Steps are flanked by piers, ironstone ashlar with
limestone coping. Flight of 4 steps within a platform and second flight of 6
steps. Flanking walls, coursed ironstone rubble with ironstone coping. Designs
for the cloister show arcades of Tuscan columns with a pitched tile roof raised
