1/156 Garden walls and terrace walls adjoining south-east of North Wyke GV II

Garden and terrace walls. 1904. Coursed small blocks of Cocktree stone ashlar with granite ashlar coping. Description: from the front left end of the gatehouse range of North Wyke a high wall with soffit-chamfered granite coping extends forwards (south-eastwards) regularly ramping down to accommodate the falling ground. In the centre it is interrupted by a gateway with square section gate posts rising higher than the wall. These have soffit-moulded granite coping and ball finials. It contains original tall wrought iron double gates enriched with twists, scrolls and fleur-de-lys. At the bottom it returns north north-eastwards revetting the terraced lawns in front of the house and rising as a low parapet with soffit-moulded granite coping. The outside of the wall is buttressed by a series of piers. The parapet ramps up to these either side and they have ball finials. It projects forward in a semicircle around a bench and further on there is a flight of stone steps from the garden terrace to the farmland below. This wall and terrace is part of a garden scheme associated with the 1904 refurbishment of North Wyke (q.v.).
