Listing Text

6/3 Walls and attacned steps
23/05/67 attached to SE of, and
extending to approx. 100m S
and 150m SW of Bulwick Hall
(Formerly listed as Garden
walls, gatepiers, terraces and
iron railings at Bulwick Hall)

1676 for James Tryon, walls are mainly C18 restored C19 and C20. Squared coursed
limestone and squared coursed limestone faced with red brick, parts with ashlar
coping and part with brick header coping. Part of the south wall forms a
retaining wall to the terrace and has attached steps which form 2 flights, with
half landings, meeting at the centre of the terrace. The C20 handrails
incorporate remains of C18 ironwork. The wall attached to the south-east of
Bulwick Hall and attached entrance loggia and garden room (q.v.) has a pair of
ashlar seat niches with semi-circular heads similar to niches in the entrance
loggia. Gateways in the walls are linked by wooden gates, James Tryon's original
garden consisted of 2 parterres in front of Bulwick Hall; these were probably
within the area enclosed by the terrace wall and the walls at right angles to
either end of the terrace. The area enclosed by walls to the south was probably
also part of James Tryon's garden.
