4/4 Leigh Park Mansion Terrace

II

Garden Terrace. Mid C19. The terrace was constructed on the west side of a
large mid-Victorian house (now gone), and overlooks a grassy slope, which leads
down to a lake (with an island). In effect, the terrace is a level area with
a low parapet wall, but it is supported on a passageway built into the hillside,
comprising 14 bays of quadripartite brick vaulting, with an inner brick wall,
the outside face formed by pointed arches and intermediate buttresses. The 2
central bays are masked by a staircase of 13 steps, turning in each direction
at a landing to form 2 flights of 7 steps. The low brick wall of the front of
the terrace becomes a flanking wall of the stairways, with a moulded stone coping
and band: at the landing the front wall is pierced by 10 diminutive arches.
The staircase flank walls end in detached shafts. All the details are in Gothic
style, with stone features and red brick walls in English bond.
