SY 29 NW WIDWORTHY

4/146 Terrace walls immediately south-
- east of Widworthy Court

GV II

Terrace walls and parapet. 1830. Local stone rubble with granite ashlar detail and
Bathstone ashlar parapet (parts rebuilt with concrete blocks). The rectangular
terraced garden in front of Widworthy Court (q.v) is revetted with stone rubble with
granite ashlar blocks standing proud with chamfered edges. The parapet is Bathstone
ashlar with rounded coping. It is divided into bays by square section posts with
pyramid caps. The original parapet bays contain rectangular panels defined by
shallow channels. Most of the front end is an open balustrade, and each front
corner is surmounted by a massive stone vase. On the north-east side there is a
semi-circular projecting bay for a seat. On each corner large scroll-shaped finials
(volutes reset from somewhere else) have been set on their sides.
