Heath conservation village - Beech Lawn ha-ha
Heath conservation village - Beech Lawn ha-ha
Ha-ha and gate-piers to front of Beech Lawn. Grade II listed. Mid-late C18. Ha-ha: punch-dressed stone, ashlar coping, the retaining walls form a circular island 3/4 round the house.
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.
