Parterre with 2 carved pillars and 6 urns. Early C18. Magnesian limestone. Rectangular, approx. 70 metres x 35 metres, set in ground rising gradually away from the house, the longer side walls gently raked upwards to the further end, which contains a wide bow with a fountain in the centre. The side and end walls have a plinth and vermiculated raised panels, the end wall has a coved niche in each of the straight outer sections, a rusticated pilaster at each end of the bow, a dragon's mouth spout over a rocky cascade in the centre, and its coping carries 6 fluted urns with carved ramshead handles. The inner end of each side wall is marked by a large heavily-carved pillar, approx. one metre square and 4 metres high, composed of a pedestal with a vermiculated panel on each side, carrying a short pillar clasped between 5-fingered volutes, with prominent moulded entablature crowned with a swan-neck pediment. Possibly by John Wood of Bath (Shown on survey of gardens by Detmar Blow, c.1907, as "sundial garden").
