the main block of Nizels House on a terrace above more open garden land. The
lower level of the garden is reached by a flight of steps leading down from
the Buddha garden to the south. The garden is planted with clipped yews and
rose bushes, a statue which formerly stood in the centre was stolen. The
retaining walls of the terrace are stone rubble with low brick walls above to
the garden, curving down in the centre of the east, north and south sides. 4
