774 Garden Wall to
TL 0338 5/5
C17. The original walled garden of Houghton House, about 70 by 50 yds.
Brick in English bond. The top of the wall was originally stepped at intervals,
by several courses at a time, to conform roughly to the slope of the ground.
Traces remain of taller and thicker piers, marking each step, though a
later hand has bricked up the triangle formed by each step, so that the
ridge now slopes uniformly parallel to the hill.
Garden Wall and Lodge Piece at Houghton House form a group.
