Garden walls to Munstead Orchard (q.v) and formerly to Munstead Woodd (q.v. bushbridge C.P).
Late Cl9, for Gertrude Jekyll. Bargate rubblestone, part with tile coping. In
front of Munstead Orchard the wall is low with domed,oversailing, coping broken
by gateway with wooden gate; it steps up at left end to approx 2 metres in
height before returning to house. To south-east, wall is taller, approx 2
metres high, having ridged tile coping and raking buttresses; on the garden side
the base of the wall is battered; the Heath Lane House section was densely over-
grown at time of inspection and partially collapsed in one place. The taller
roadside walling originally formed part of Gertrude Jekyllis garden at Munstead
Wood which is listed Grade I in the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special
Historic Interest (Part 40, Surrey). J Brown, Gardens of a Golden Afternoon
(1982), pp 35-41.
