Ballamooar

Introduction

When the site was laid out, there was extensive planting, which extended across the road up a glen. Roadside walls were built in 1753. Other features included an enclosed orchard with frames and a mount (perhaps burial mound) with a banqueting house. There were also stone eagles and pineapples for gatepiers (brought from Bath in 1758) and a sundial in Poyllvaaish 'marble' (1774). It is unclear how many of these features remain intact.
