Garden walls, gatepiers and steps at rear of Woodperry House
(Formerly listed as Woodperry House with garden and entrance gates and screens)


Garden walls, gatepiers and steps. Early/mid C18, possibly partly earlier.
Limestone rubble with some ashlar dressings. Rubble walls run from pavilions
(q.v.) to enclose the rectangular parterre, at the rear of Woodperry House
(q.v.) and extend beyond around a narrower kitchen garden at a much lower level.
The walls are heavily buttressed to north and east, where they serve as
retaining walls, reaching a height of 6m. At the north-east corner are the
remains of a 2-storey single-cell early C18 building on the exterior of the wall
in rubble with ashlar dressings, which has flat-arched openings and the remains
of cross window frames. The east wall of the parterre has central gateway
between a pair of ashlar piers with moulded cornices and ball finials. The steps
to the kitchen garden descend between ashlar walls curving inwards towards short
square piers at the bottom.
