4/112 Terrace wall about 40m south of the
- Manor Hotel
Terrace wall to the garden in front of the Manor Hotel (q.v.). Late C19 and designed
by Sabine Baring-Gould for himself. Stone rubble and granite. Stone rubble wall has
projecting piers of square section crowned with granite pinnacles with ball finials.
A gateway from the garden into the field beyond is formed between 2 piers with taller
granite pinnacles and ball finials. The terrace is part of the landscape that
Baring-Gould created around the manor house and forms the boundary between the garden
to the south of the house and the field that leads down to the quarry that he flooded
for a boating lake. The Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was both squire and
parson at Lew Trenchard from 1881 until his death. He was a High churchman,
antiquarian and prolific author of fiction and theological works. He rebuilt Lew
House (now the Manor Hotel) in the late C19 and also designed "The Ramps" (qv),
visible from the garden, above the flooded quarry.
