Retaining wall. Early C18, rebuilt mid-C19. Brick in English garden wall
bond with sandstone coping. Roughly a quadrant about 20 yards long with a
west end return and terminating at north end in square pier with pyramidal

deer park beyond (the original layout is clearly illustrated in a perspective
drawing of 1732 by Joseph Dougharty). (Hanbury Hall, The National Trust Official
