A probably c1800 walled garden, which could be contemporary with the slightly earlier house.
A large rectangular walled garden about 50m x 60m with walls about 3m in height. The walls are built of coursed squared red sandstone rubble with dressed copings. The inner faces are in red brick. There is a pair of red brick gatepiers and wrought iron gates which have been introduced in the late C20. There are three other small original doorways.
There is evidence on the north wall of greenhouses now removed.
Included as a late C18 or early C19 walled garden having group value with the adjacent The Grondra and its icehouse.
