1/111 Terraces at Gledstone
Retaining walls, pergolas and steps, 1923 by Sir Edwin Lutyens with the assistance
of Gertrude Jekyll. Thin coursed ashlar. The garden was laid out on a steeply
sloping site with a terrace parallel to the house and two arms coming off this
at right angles. Between them five flights of steps descend to a lower terrace
flanking a long pool, and at the further end more steps lead down past the rounded
end of the pool and between the great battered ends of the upper terrace. These
ends of the terrace support two pergolas each of sixteen stone piers. Another
pergola of twelve piers leads off the outer side of the eastern terrace. The
pool ends under a segmental arch and vault, the keystone of which feeds it.
The well-preserved final fruit of the collaboration between Lutyens and Jekyll.
