Listing Text


16/470 Terrace walls and steps to the
18.1.77 garden south of St Michaels(formerly
listed as Terrace Wall to Burrswood)

Terrace walls and steps. Probably early C20, dating from a period when the
garden was designed by the brother of the owner, a newspaper magnate called
Johnstone (Lee). Rusticated stone.

The coped wall immediately south of the house has a series of deep low
buttresses on the south side. Steps lead down to the second terrace, the
steps with flanking ramped walls surmounted by ball finials. The walls of the
second terrace are surmounted by urns.

Included for group value with St Michaels (q.v.).
