Retaining wall steps and railings. c1740, altered C19 and C20.
Brick, rendered, with ashlar coping and steps and wrought-iron
railing. The wall, approx 60m long, varies in height with the
slope of the ground, maximum approx 3m. Near the centre, 2
large segment-arched entrances, C19, with panelled doors. To
west, an altered garage opening with lintel, then 2
segment-arched doorways. The wall is topped with a spiked
wrought-iron railing. At the west end, 3 sections of scrolled
railing, resited. At the east end, a flight of steps with
