SS54NW BERRYNARBOR 853-1/2/141 Higher Trayne, garden piers, steps and walls

GV II

Piers, steps and garden walls. c1939-41 by Oliver Hill. Triangular faceted garden piers of dressed local stone flanking stone semi-circular steps leading onto the brink of the coombe. Attached drystone walls enclosing the gardens and forming the "Italian" garden to the north. The garden lay-out was contrived to link house (qv) and coombe together with views of the sea and Welsh coast. A string of small ponds step down the slope in front of the house to give reflections. Higher Trayne forms a group with the garden piers, steps and garden walls. (Country Life: 29 October 1943: London: 1943-: 772-775).
