PLAN: Tall walls (over 3m high) bound a walled garden S of
Lower Blagdon House (qv) and front Lower Blagdon Lane. Pair of
pretty C19 timber gates, panelled below the middle rail with
timber vertical above, projecting through the top rail which
is scalloped. Spear-head terminals to the standard finials.
Deerpark walls bound a large field N and W of the house and
form an entrance courtyard to the W of the house. To the N of
the entrance courtyard, the walls have unusual battlementing
with deep merlons. 8 of these merlons are hollow and have

service entrance of the house. They may have functioned as
pigeon holes, as well as having a decorative purpose.
2-centred archway to deerpark from the entrance court. The
walled garden S of the house has a gateway from Lower Blagdon
