Heath conservation village - Dower House ha-ha
Heath conservation village - Dower House ha-ha
A Grade II listed ha-ha and gate piers to south front of the Dower House. Constructed mid C18. in Hammer-dressed stone and ashlar and the corners have spiked metal straps to discourage cattle from using them as rubbing posts.
In landscape-gardening, the ha-ha is a boundary to a garden designed not to interrupt a view from e.g. a country-house. It consists of a ditch with side nearest the viewpoint perpendicular faced with brick or stone, and the other side sloped and turfed. It kept animals away from the gardens, yet was concealed.
