attached outbuildings,
greenhouse and
pillars, west of
Blagdon Hall
Garden walls, outbuildings, greenhouse and supporting pillars for roses. Late
C18 or early C19 with alterations under Sir Edwin Lutyens' garden scheme, 1926-
1938. Walls and outbuildings brick in English Garden Wall Bond 1 and 4, with
stone dressings and Lakeland slate roofs; greenhouse glass, wood and cast iron
on ashlar base; pillars brick. Rectangular walled garden with short diagonal
wing walls at southern angles, ending in square piers; south-eastern links to
pond surround (q.v.). Wall with flat stone coping; both coping and coursing
sloped down steeply on either side of lower central section on south. Coping
ramped up on either side of gateway on east, with elaborate wrought-iron gate
between piers with foliate ball finials. Boarded door on north in alternating-
block surround. Greenhouse against inner face of wall to west of door has
patterned spandrel brackets and ornate wrought-iron ridge finials. Pent
outbuildings, against outer face of wall east of door, have boarded doors,
16-pane sash windows and 2 segmental arches.

Cruciform-plan paths within garden lined (except in north-east quarter) by
pillars with dog-tooth friezes and stepped caps; these were formerly linked by
wood rails which supported climbing roses.

Altered greenhouses and house at north-west corner are not of special interest.
