ST GILES STEVENSTONE PARK
SS 52 19 IN THE WOOD
17/222 Terrace walls approximately 19
- metres south and 24 metres east
of Stevenstone House

GV II

Terrace walls. Circa 1872-3, by the Honourable Mark George Kerr Rolle. Snecked
local stone with slightly-rusticated ashlar quoins, sandstone ashlar balustrade and
coping.
Plan: Stevenstone House (q.v.), now ruined, stands on a terrace. The view across the
former deer park is to south-south-west, say south. Approximately 19 metres south
the terrace drops into the deer park. It is revered with this wall with a stone
balustrade and alternate bays break very slightly forward. To left (west) the
terrace breaks forward as a quadrant curving westwards as a quadrant round the former
croquet lawn to a gateway from the deer park to an internal flight up to the deer
park. Here it meets a ha ha (q.v.), separately listed with the garden walls. At the
right end a flight of steps leads down from the terrace to the deer park and at this
point the terrace wall returns northwards as far as Stevenstone Court, formerly the
service buildings of the big house.
Exterior: The revetment walls have a balustrade of stone ashlar splat balusters
separated by broad piers which are recessed in the centre. The gate piers to the
deer park are square in section with flat caps and contain the original cast iron
gates; twisted rails with fleur-de-lys finials and alternate rails down to mid
height.
