5/281 Garden wall to SE of
Childwick Bury Manor


Garden wall. Late C18, altered late C19. Red brick with
vitrified brick buttresses and piers. Square plan, the walls
about 4 metres high. Wide openings on NW and SE sides, formerly
giving uninterrupted prospect from house, but NW side blocked by
late C19 greenhouses. Flanking walls on this side have square
pavilions. The outer sides of the pavilions have pedimented
doorways, the inner sides roundels. SE opening has late C19
terracotta garden wall, beyond which is a C18 'ha-ha'. A good
example of a walled garden that has been integrated with the SE
axis of the house.
