An Italianate flight of stone steps, the lower section a series of 7 wide shallow steps with low bordering parapet walls which have wide shallow saddleback coping. The flight bifurcates and 7 steps ascend on either side of a curved central wall with a semicircular trough at base, ending in low piers with shallow capstones; 7 steps return and a flight of 11 steps ascends to a gateway with piers of tooled stone blocks, at the entrance to the terraced woodland walks. The stone is laid in narrow courses; stone flags to the landings.
Included as a particularly decorative early C20 garden feature and for group value with other listed items within the grounds at Buckland.
