SJ 65 SW
4/11 Wall fronting south
(garden) front, of
- Dorfold Hall

Retaining wall, at change in level of lawns, south of the Hall,
probably 1862. Sandstone ashlar, solid wall, with moulded plinth and
weathered overhanging coping, ovolo moulded on the underside. The
wall is only one block high between plinth and coping but the plinth
is deeper on the south side of the wall where the ground level is
lower. There are plain projecting pilasters at three-stone-intervals
with plinth and coping widened at these points. Ball finials, on
scotia moulded bases, flank openings in the wall. The east end of the
wall returns north and has six steps leading to the lower level. The
steps are flanked both sides by a solid stepped balustrade of similar
construction to the wall.
