and parterre curb north of Bishton
Garden screen, terrace, walls and parterre. Circa 1840's. Architect not known. Pink sandstone
ashlar. Comprising a screen on the north side with a summerhouse at the centre, in the form
ofa Greek Doric hexastyle apteral temple, and flanking porticos, distyle in antis; in front of the
screen there is a terrace with vases and steps down to a formal garden with low boundary walls
and an elaborately shaped parterre at the centre with large moulded curb stones. The parterre
has been converted to a fish pond. The summerhouse is a finely detailed Greek Doric temple;
inside it is semi-circular and ashlar lined with pilastered walls with niches and a stone bench.
Note: The screen might have been built to screen the gardens from the nearby Trent Valley
Railway Line, which was built in 1845-7.
