Detailed Description

This private, communal garden is opposite Nos. 1-9 Rodney Place and has a curved side which follows the curve of the original carriage drive (now a road) to these properties, and a straight side to Clifton Down Road. The garden is enclosed by a stone boundary wall. There are two, Bath stone, gate piers (one at the southern and one at the northern end of the garden). Railings have been replaced recently on the boundary wall fronting onto Clifton Down Road, but not on the wall on the curved side of the garden facing Rodney Place. The original entrance to the garden (which is for pedestrians only) is opposite 3 Rodney Place. A second entrance has been made (apparently more recently) opposite 4 Rodney Place.
