double door, now with one window; the rest is of rubblestone with, at right end,
wide entrance with curved timber lintel to canted internal porch having door on
left and datestone "GJ 1909"; to left of porch, tall cross-window rising as

projecting from left (south-west) end ramps up over archway at end nearest
building. North range: a round-arched doorway to "mushroom shed" with water
tank over. The item is important in being part of the group of buildings at
Munstead Wood designed by Lutyens, and particularly in its function as Gertrude
Jekyll's potting shed, since it was as a gardener that Miss Jekyll made her
name. The garden is listed Grade I in the Register of Parks and Gardens of
Special Historic Interest (Part 40, Surrey). Waverley Borough Council, Lutyens
in Waverley.
