21/202 Garden walls to
north of World
Bird Research
Station
GV II

Garden walls, c.1796 incorporating earlier C18 wall on west. Squared stone.
3-metre high flat-coped wall on east is linked by lower wall at south end to
stable/coach-house (q.v.) at rear of World Bird Research Station; similar wall
on north. 2-metre high west wall has gabled coping, and runs past west end of
Primrose Cottage (q.v.).

The walls originally enclosed a formal garden behind The Mansion (now the
World Bird Research Station); since 1930 the area has been planted with a
variety of both indigenous and exotic trees, and used as a bird sanctuary and
study area.
