Rubble to Garden Wall with dressed stone coping, ashlar to piers and architectural features of both garden structures, stone slates to roof of Temple. The Temple is a tetrastyle Doric loggia with a hipped roof and ridge ball finials which gives on to a square courtyard, walled on the east and west and leading via 3 semi- circular steps down to the formal east axis of the garden. At each side of the steps are curving quadrant balustraded walls and tall Gatepiers, 2.5 metres high with acanthus cornices, ball finials and fruit swagged scrolls on the wall abutments. The Exedra is a semi-circular recess in the Boundary Wall with ball finials to the rear wall and 2 tall piers, 3 metres high, with attached columns with composite capitals, deeply projecting entablatures and vast urn finials with fruit and flower swags. The piers also have large volutes extending from the entablature to the wall. The recess has an aluminium statue of a winged female figure of 1921 by ? A. Klein. These features together with several others comprise a fine formal garden layout by Thomas for Henry Martin Gibbs; it is included in the Historic Gardens Register : Part 1 Avon.
