GV II

Terrace wall. 1809-1815 by Sir Jeffrey Wyatville for Sir Paul Baghott. Random rubble limestone. Section of wall to north of house adjoins entrance terrace with various circular and triangular bastions, partly ruined. Some trefoil-headed lancets with iron ferramenta, designed to suggest more extensive fortress. Two round profile string courses, lower part of wall battered. To south of the Mansion, main terrace wall set at higher level, terrace walk passing below. Adjoining Mansion is large ashlar Tudor arched opening with doorway to cellar, this interrupting the higher level south terrace wall. Walls give impression of present house forming a small fragment of much larger medieval fortress.
