Details

PITCHFORD C.P. PITCHFORD SJ 5204 - 5304 12/135 Terrace retaining wall - adjoining Pitchford Hall to east GV II Terrace retaining wall. 1870's and 1880's, probably by George Devey and possibly incorporating parts of an earlier wall. Coursed red sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings and stone coping. Irregularly curved wall, returning to adjoin Pitchford Hall (qv ) at the north end; approximately 60 metres long and of varying heights. A short straight section at the south end of the wall has square ashlar end piers with globe finials and provides a visual stop to the flights of steps (qv) which descend from the lawn to the south of the house. There is a small culvert arch at the south end too. The wall retains the west bank of the Row Brook as it passes close to the east of Pitchford Hall (qv) and helps to create a very picturesque setting. It is also probably a partial rebuilding of a wall in a similar location shown on an estate map of 1714, kept in the house. Included for group value.
