3/133 Retaining wall on east
side of pond situated
about 50 yards north-west
of Hanbury Hall
Retaining wall. Early C18, rebuilt mid-C19. Brick in English garden wall
bond with sandstone coping. Roughly a quadrant about 20 yards long with a
west end return and terminating at north end in square pier with pyramidal
capping. The wall was originally linked to one of a pair of pavilions forming
a boundary between the formal garden layout by George London and the pond and
deer park beyond (the original layout is clearly illustrated in a perspective
drawing of 1732 by Joseph Dougharty). (Hanbury Hall, The National Trust Official
Guidebook, 1981, p 27-30; VCH 3 (ii), p 372-3; Country Life xxxix, p 502;
CXLiii 18, 16, gardens x 368).
