Garden walling with outbuildings and pool. 1900, by Gerald C Horsley for H C Stephens
M.P. Unknapped flintwork incorporating some stone, brick dressings. Essentially
walling enclosing kitchen garden about 75 metres x 90 metres, about 4 metres high
divided into bays by full-height offset piers; 6 bays to east and west, 3 bays to
north; this last incorporates sundry outbuildings and a recessed centre semi-circular
archway in a stone panel, approached by a podium and 8 side steps on north side over
a tank room set partly below ground. Garden side of walls all brick lined: at south
ends the walls splay, centering on a circular pool with stone perimeter wall about
0.5 metre high and said to be 5 metres deep, the 20 metre diameter pool is surrounded
by 31 random sized tanks (presumably for species water plants), and on south side are
stone steps, a central stair and two flanking stairs with serpentine walls lead to
gateway facing Cholderton Park House (q.v.) of which this feature is an important part
of the setting (Wiltshire Record Office, Cat No. 1894, has one signed and dated detail
drawing).
