ST GILES STEVENSTONE PARK SS 52 19 IN THE WOOD 17/222 Terrace walls approximately 19 - metres south and 24 metres east of Stevenstone House

GV II

Terrace walls. Circa 1872-3, by the Honourable Mark George Kerr Rolle. Snecked local stone with slightly-rusticated ashlar quoins, sandstone ashlar balustrade and coping. Plan: Stevenstone House (q.v.), now ruined, stands on a terrace. The view across the former deer park is to south-south-west, say south. Approximately 19 metres south the terrace drops into the deer park. It is revered with this wall with a stone balustrade and alternate bays break very slightly forward. To left (west) the terrace breaks forward as a quadrant curving westwards as a quadrant round the former croquet lawn to a gateway from the deer park to an internal flight up to the deer park. Here it meets a ha ha (q.v.), separately listed with the garden walls. At the right end a flight of steps leads down from the terrace to the deer park and at this point the terrace wall returns northwards as far as Stevenstone Court, formerly the service buildings of the big house. Exterior: The revetment walls have a balustrade of stone ashlar splat balusters separated by broad piers which are recessed in the centre. The gate piers to the deer park are square in section with flat caps and contain the original cast iron gates; twisted rails with fleur-de-lys finials and alternate rails down to mid height.
