of Bank House
Garden walls attached to right and left of Bank House. 1857, by William White.
Stone rubble with granite and slate dressings.
The wall attached to rear left of Bank House is in 4 stepped ranges, about 2½ metres
high, with a gateway at each end. The middle three ranges are battered, with rubble
coping and granite quoins to the batter. The first range to right has 2-centred
arched doorway, plank door with strap hinges, convex mouldings with hood mould and
banded relieving arch. Pitched slate roof over the wall with crested ridge tiles and
pinnacle to left with finial. To end left is a double gateway with tall pier with
pyramidal cap to right, narrow Gothic coping to the wall end to left. Wooden gate.
The wall is continued to enclose a roughly rectangular garden at the rear of Bank
House. Attached to the front right of the house is a low wall with hollow-moulded
granite coping and slender piers with finials to each side of a single gateway with
later C19 wrought iron gate. Wooden palings on the wall in place of former railings.
Similar terminal pier to right.
The walls are an integral part of the design of the house.
