SK 81 SE BURLEY 3/9 Burley on the Hill: Terrace parapet, retaining wall and staircase GV II*

Formal terrace on south front of house C18. Long low parapet, balustraded, alternating with moulded stone panels, above high stone retaining wall containing shallow arched recesses. 2 symmetrical flights of steps with stone balustrades and sweeping stone rail rise to the central projecting section of terrace. It may be the sole survivor of 3 tiered terraces built by Daniel Finch, c1710, though possibly as reconstructed by Repton who was responsible for the removal of the lower terrace, c1796. Buckingham's house also had tiered terraces, so that this represents a continuing of the tradition. From a distance, it acts as an important visual base and foundation of the house.
