3/14 Steps, Walls, ornamental Vases and Sundial forming junction between rose garden and north lawn at Barrow Court

G.V. II*

Steps, Walls, ornamental Vases and Sundial. Circa 1890 by F. Inigo Thomas. Coursed rubble to wall base and lower archway, ashlar dressings and copings, ironwork railings. A series of stone steps up either side of a rusticated archway over a semi-circular pond. At the top of the steps a viewing platform of stone flags placed centrally on the north boundary axis path of the Rose Garden. The archway has a lion's head spout whose water course links with the Lily Pond (q.v.). The platform is enclosed on the north side by iron railings with urn finials and wrought iron panels of Tijou derivation; 2 ornamental Vases are set at each corner as the steps ascend: slim tapered necks and gadrooned bowls. The Sundial is placed centrally on the platform: baluster shaped shaft with acanthus carving and a copper plaque with missing shadow bar. These features together with others comprise a fine formal garden layout designed by Thomas for Henry Martin Gibbs; it is included in the Historic Gardens Register : Part 1 Avon. (Country Life, 18 January 1902, R. Cooke, West Country Houses, 1957).
