Description


SE 36 NW NEWBY WITH MULWITH NEWBY PARK

1/40 Statue Walk with 6
statues, and 5 sets of
steps with flanking
balustrades (formerly listed as
6.3.67 "Venetian Statues at Newby Hall")

GV II


Statue walk with 5 sets of steps, 6 statues and balustrades with vases. The
statues, said to be C17 but possibly later. The walk laid out c1870 for
Lady Mary Vyner, probably to designs by William Burges. Gritstone
balustrade and steps, limestone statues and plinths. The walk is straight,
approximately 150 metres long, the ground sloping down from east to west,
necessitating one flight of 4 steps at the eastern end and 2 flights of 3
steps at the western end. The pathway also forms the edge of a terrace,
with steps down at the centre and at the east end. Each flight of steps is
flanked by balustrades of bulbous balusters interrupted by square piers with
urns or ball finials. The 6 statues are on the south side of the walk,
facing the house. They probably form 2 sets: I being the 4 seasons, and a
pair of statues possibly representing Flora and Bacchus. The Statue Walk
was laid out as part of the south garden scheme in the late C19, extended to
south mid C20. John Cornforth, "Newby in the 19th Century", Country Life,
Dec 25, 1980, p 2406.
