Details

BARHAM SHRUBLAND ESTATE TM 15 SW 3/19 Upper Gun Terrace, 10m west of Shrubland Hall 9.12.55 - II* Terrace, c.1849-50. Part of extensive gardens by Sir Charles Barry for Sir W.F. Middleton, Bart. The terrace extends almost the full width of the west elevation of Shrubland Hall, giving access from the earlier terrace at 1st floor level to the lower Balcony Garden. Cream limestone ashlar. A central flight of steps leads down to the Balcony Garden, the lower steps fanned out to give a semi-circular plan. The open balustrading has square piers bearing gadrooned or swag-carved urns, some of which only have the bases surviving. On either side is a 5-bay retaining wall with vermiculated rusticated piers and fielded panels. The balustrading returns cowards the house at the north and south end, with short flights of steps. A gun captured in 1855 by Admiral Sir A. Broke-Middleton stands upon the terrace, with a table nearby to explain its origin.
