Walled gardens. Circa 1700, in parts repaired C19 and C20. Red brick.
Three irregular courts, with continuous central path, each court about 75
yards by 25, although the southernmost is larger,the whole encompassing
about 4 acres. The walls are an average about 8 feet high or more with
tall piers to the openings, showing signs of late C19, early C20 reconstruction.
The bonding varies from an irregular English bond and Garden Wall bond to
Flemish bond, sometimes with coping. Round arched doorways, and 2 round
arched gates near the house, rusticated with flint key blocks and side blocks,
either mid C18, or just possibly mid C17 (perhaps connected with now demolished
Well House, in the style of Jones).
