12.7.67 Garden terraces and steps to
SE of Haddon Hall, (formerly
listed as 'Balustrades and
steps at Haddon Hall')
Garden terraces and steps. Partly mid C16 and partly early C17. Rubble limestone
and ashlar gritstone. Series of four garden terraces, down to river level, with
high dry stone limestone rubble retaining walls and flights of steps between levels.
The early C17 top terrace has a balustrade with central steps to lower terrace on
its southern side, made up of five bay arcades of square rusticated balusters with
semi-circular headed arches between, with projecting keystones, topped by wide
handrail and linked by large rusticated piers, surmounted by large ball finials.
The lower terrace is in turn supported by high walls to south-east and south-west,
each with a series of massive, dry stone wall, battered buttresses. Similar wall
with buttresses to south-west, supporting the path near the Chapel, with a long
flight of steps down to river level at southern end. Two lower terraces, partly paved
with steps between them at eastern corner. All these lower terraces possibly
date from mid C16 when the south-east range of the west courtyard was reconstructed.
