Description

Flight of twelve cut-limestone steps, c.1800, on an L-shaped plan arranged in groups of six with limestone flagged landing, and random rubble stone parapet having cut-limestone coping supporting sections of wrought iron railings incorporating spear-head finials.

Appraisal

An attractive flight of steps traditionally constructed employing locally-sourced materials exuding a picturesque character lacking in modern methods of paving. An example of early-surviving iron work enlivens the design aesthetic of the site on account of the incorporation of elegant spear-head finials.
