path with a pergola of roughly hewn granite monolith posts on the outer side and
slate piers on the inner side. The granite outer posts are set on a retaining wall

of the path there is a flight steps, with integral curved seats either side, giving
accesss to the terrace around the house; at the other (west) end of the path a pair
of squat circular piers to a flight of steps which link all the terraces. At the

as squat terminal piers with granite bosses on their tops. On the west (left) side
of the lower terrace a tall boundary wall encloses a small rectangular pond or well.
