Garden wall, steps and gate piers south of Langdon Court Hotel, Langdon, Wembury - South Hams

Late C17 to early C18 formal terraced garden, the layout little altered since the early C18. Terraces extend south from the house on rising ground, with central axial path and connecting steps. Enclosed by walls to the east, south and west. The northern (larger) terrace has C17 gate piers and gates in the east and west walls and a central pool. The present owner has instigated a programme of phased repair, which is partially completed and condition remains static as at May 2018.
