Terrace and Balustrades

Terrace and Balustrades

Terrace and Memento Mori (Latin for ‘remember you have to die’)

The stone balustrades lining the terrace stand atop the flint knapped walls have been carefully recreated from Victorian photographs, reinstating a lost heritage feature from the Cheal design. It frames the vistas of the park from the Victorian past time of ‘promenading’.

The two plaques in the terrace wall dated 1647 and 1649 were recreated from the originals which are believed to be from Ellington House.
