The Great Wall
TQ 2588 26/5
TQ 2587 28/5


By Sir E Lutyens. Red brick. Long stretch of walling partly with pierced parapet
which stretches from Hampstead Way to Heathgate. It forms the garden wall of
various houses, each of which has a garden house with gazebo looking over the wall.
These are partly weatherboarded with sliding sash windows and tiled pyramid roofs.
Each garden has a door to the Heath Extension, some of which are set in tiled
archways. The original intention was that it should continue to Wildwood Road, but
the eastern section was never built.
