1/167 Walls, steps and statue to
- the sunken garden south east
of Nizels House
GV II

Walls, steps and a statue to the formal sunken garden at Nizels House. Early
C20, probably associated with the drawing room addition to the house, at the
south end. Rock-faced snecked standstone walls, bronze statue on stone
plinth.

Plan: Approximately rectangular, the southern wall bowed out, with a flight
of steps in the centre at the north end leading down into the garden, which is
planted with roses. Pergola archways lead out of the garden at the south west
and south east ends; statue in centre.

The retaining walls are coped with square section piers at intervals, each
pier crowned by a finial in the form of a bowl of fruit. The statue in the
centre, on a Portland stone plinth, depicts Bacchus.

One of 3 formal gardens round Nizels House and important to the setting of the
building.
