DYRHAM AND HINTON C.P., DYRHAM PARK, Wall, basin, gate piers and steps about 17 metres east of Stable Block

G.V.

II

Wall, attached water basin, piers and steps. Late C18. Limestone ashlar and rubble with stone dressings, pennant stone. Wall about 50 metres long and 2 metres high in rubble with stone coping, ramped up at north end to small ashlar pier with flat top with moulded edge; at north end, a rectangular retaining wall forms large double basin, pennant steps to north, linking the wall to the south elevation of the Orangery (q.v.). To south, a pair of square ashlar piers, about 4 metres high, with plinth, flat top with moulded edge (to south, C20 replica), each surmounted by carved dog. The pair of piers may possibly be of earlier date, resited at the time Humphry Repton visited Dyrham, 1800. The water supply for the basin is in direct line with the cascade of William Blathwayt's garden in the late C17 and early C18.
