NU 20 NW
3/178 Garden and paddock
walls to south of
Hartlaw Farm

Garden walls, later C17. Squared rubble with cut dressings. The walls flank
the present gardens immediately south of Hartlaw Farm Cottages, then step out
to enclose a larger square, now a field. The east wall of the present garden
is 2.5 metres high, with a 2-course monopitch coping, stepped up over a
boarded door in alternating-block surround near the north end, where a short
return links to the south-east corner of No. 2. The west wall is similar but
has a C20 doorway and has lost its coping. Wall on west and north-west of
field retains its coping and increases in height to 5 metres at the southern
(downhill) end; in this section are a blocked door, with a raised and chamfered
stone surround, and a chamfered doorway with flat-pointed arch. Coping is
sloped steeply down at west end of south wall; centre section raised above a
chamfered former doorway, the lower jambs of which remain. The east and
north-east walls have been reduced to half height; in centre of east wall the
chamfered jambs of a former archway 2.5 metres wide.
