Garden causeway at Copt
TL 40 SW
Hall and attached ha-ha
and terrace wall to the
west of Copt Hall (in the
7/195 Parish of Epping Upland)
Garden causeway, c.1895, by C E Kempe for Edward James Wythes. Built of brick
with facing of squared and coursed limestone and ashlar coping. The causeway
extends approx 60 m on an east-west axis having a rusticated through-arch and
the remains of stone steps leading down to sunken parterres which lie to north
and south of causeway. The causeway is attached on its eastern end to the
centre of a terrace wall, which borders east sides of parterres and runs to meet
garden pavilions (qv) at its north and south ends. West end of causeway has
semi-circular projection, forming part of ha-ha wall which extends approx 40 m
to south and in an L shape approx 70 m to north-west. The causeway has had
balustrading, obelisks and statuary removed, and formed part of a formal garden
laid out in Edwardian Baroque style, after the type advocated by Reginald
Blomfield in his book 'The Formal Garden in England', 1892.
