831-1/2/38 (North side)
Terrace retaining walls, steps and
gates to south and east of Burton


Terrace retaining wall with associated steps and gates.
Mid-late C19. Probably originally laid out by Paxton for
William Allcard of Burton Closes (qv); likely to have been
extended as the house became enlarged. Deeply-coursed dressed
sandstone with ashlar copings and steps; iron gates.
L-shaped retaining wall approximately 60m in length across
south front and 45m across east front. South limb is low and
has moulded copings; 3 openings with stone steps to lower
terrace; ramped side wall at west end.
The terrace breaks forward at the south-east corner beyond
which the retaining wall continues north before terminating at
a broad flight of 19 steps with ramped side walls.
At the foot of the steps is an iron side gate; at the head is
a balustrade with 10 Tudor-arched openings which closes the
north end of the terrace.
A short section of wall across north end of house finishes at
a flight of steps with a pair of Gothic Revival gates.
