(North Side)
Walls to north of
Gough Park Cottage
TQ 3398 3/280


Three ranges of tall mid late C18 walls. Red brick in Flemish bond sloped up on
outer sides to coping of bricks on sides. Coping possibly later. Flat buttresses
at intervals. The longest wall, running east-west through the gardens, has two
pairs of gate piers, the eastern pair rebuilt at the top with replaced pineapple
finials and supporting a wrought iron gate with ornamental overthrow. A spur wall
runs north and is ramped up to a taller wall probably later in date, of larger bricks
and having a blocked gateway. Some rebuilding to upper courses. The long wall is in
poor repair at the west end, having lost several top courses. A wrought-iron fence
with ornamental panels and spearhead standards, links it to the road. The walls are
of interest as forming garden divisions in the estate of Richard Gough FSA, FRS (1735-
1809) the antiquarian and topographer, who came into the property in 1774. The
Cambridge architect James Essex designed improvements to the now demolished mansion
and may have laid out these walls.
