front of The Vicarage
Retaining wall and steps. Probably early C19. Marlstone ashlar and limestone.
Wall has moulded coping and a chamfered plinth which is carried up at the base
to small square piers with moulded caps, between which runs a pierced limestone
balustrade in fishscale pattern with a moulded coping. The double flight of
steps is recessed into the centre, the balustrade returning behind it. A central
section of balustrade to the front of the steps ramps downwards to left and
right with the stair. A plainer length of retaining wall, approx. 1m. high, runs
approx. 20m. to left. Included for group value.
