SU 5249 Walls to kitchen garden,
6/26 forecourt, and roadside
boundary, with garden
1. GV store buildings,
1897-8, by Sir Edwin Lutyens. The square forecourt to the north front of the house is
enclosed by high walls, having a roughcast finish on slightly-battered sides and
crowned by a tiled roof with hollow soffits on each side. There are arched openings
with large stone double keys; the driveway and the axis between lodge and entrance
pierces the wall, with lamps fixed beneath the hipped tile cover. The wall extends
northwards on the west side to reach the lodge building, with a rising curve above the
opening to the kitchen garden. Further west the walling encloses the large kitchen
garden, which has in the north-west angle a storage building with tile-hung gables,
but hipped on the outside. The northern range of the kitchen garden is the roadside
boundary, and the wall continues east of the lodge.
