Walls of walled
garden at Abney Hall


Walls of walled garden. 1850 s. Probably Travis and
Mangnall. Flemish bond brick with stone dressings. Roughly
quadrangular in layout, part of the north-west side having
been demolished. The wall, approx.4m. high, has weathered
buttresses at frequent intervals which are set back at the
corners, and a weathered stone coping. Each side has a
principal feature, the grandest being the north-west gateway
which has a large 4-centred archway topped by a gabled clock
tower with gableted and weathered buttresses, mullioned
windows, coped parapets and an ornate finial. Each other
side has an entrance feature with 4-centred arch doorway,
buttresses and a coped gable. Corner octagonal ventilation
shaft rises as a large elaborate Gothic pinnacle with
arcaded stage.
