The South Elevation of Woburn Abbey

S elevation: thought to be by Chambers but heavily reworked by Holland. Truncate, although symmetry maintained by Richardson's work. Ground is banked higher to S side than elsewhere, being at first floor level of building. Main block is same height as pavilions, giving a 2-storeyed facade. 2:9:2 sash windows with glazing bars. Ground floor windows are full-length, with shouldered architraves and triangular pediments. Those to outer bays are set into shallow round-arched recesses. Balustraded parapet. Stone-flagged terrace runs whole length of elevation.
