Full description

Department of Environment, 1989, St. Giles in the Wood, 183 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV655.

Garden walls adjoining west of the orangery and ha-ha adjoining west of Stevenstone House terrace. Garden walls and ha-ha. Circa 1872. Local stone rubble with sandstone ashlar coping, brick piers with sandstone ashlar capitals, cast iron railings. The walls enclose 3 sides of the garden open on the east side towards the ruins of Stevenstone House. The north wall is a tall stone rubble wall alongside the drive to the west lodge. Circa 1980 a gateway was inserted. It has square section brick piers and contains large plank double doors. At the west end is an original corner pier. It is brick, square in section with moulded cap and carved pineapple finial, there is another at the south end corner of the west return wall and 2 similar piers without the finials flank a wide central gateway. Between these piers the west wall is low, built of snecked stone and ramps down from north to south as the ground falls away gently. It is surmounted by cast iron twisted rails and spearheaded finials with similar lower intermediate rails. The south return is a ha-ha, a stone rubble revetment to the garden terrace and overlooking the former deer park to the south.
