Garden wall. Probably early c18. Red and grey brick on a coursed
ragstone base. Surrounds the garden of West Farleigh Hall on virtually
every side. North end of west boundary wall red and grey brick in a
Flemish-type bond, on galleted ragstone base, about 9' high, and
extending about 85' from north-west corner to first gatepier; also
returns from north-west corner to form north boundary of garden. Gateway
to north of centre of west wall has rectangular piers (to which wall is
ramped down), with moulded cornice and ball finials. Wooden gates,
ramped up to piers at ends. Central section of west wall about 4' high
built of coursed ragstone, with red and grey brick parapet, extending about
90' between gateways, opposite house. Gateway to south of centre of west
wall similar to north-central gateway. Beyond it, stone wall continues
about 60' south-south-east to gateway to former stable yard, which is
similar to the other gateways. Thereafter the wall increases in height,
with chequered red and grey brick above a galleted stone base, continuing
about 225' south-east bordering Ewell Lane, then reducing to height of
stone base for a further 55'. (Country Life 21st September 1967).
