- SJ 41366 34472
- II
Garden feature of uncertain function. Circa 1826 to 1842 for Charles
Kynaston Mainwaring. Yellow sandstone ashlar and snecked rock-faced
sandstone. In 2 sections, upper consisting of rectangular bastion with
corbelled parapet, lower a buttressed revetment wall with coped parapet,
some dislodged and lying on ground at time of resurvey (February 1987).
Infilled Tudor arch to front of bastion. Charles Kynaston Mainwaring
was a keen amateur gardener and he travelled extensively on the continent.
It is believed that he was personally responsible for much of the design
of the garden and park at Oteley and for the features therein. His
house, Oteley Park, built for him in an Elizabethan style on the site of
an earlier building between 1826 and 1830 and extended in 1842 was
demolished c.1960. B.O.E. p. 226; Peter Reid, Burke's and Savills
