Possibly contemporary with the house, which is dated 1776. The Tithe apportionment describes it as a garden in 1844. An alcove was inserted into the W wall in the late C19.
Walls of rubble stone, up to 4m high, enclosing the N, W and part of the S side of a former orchard. The N wall abuts at its E end a former outbuilding now converted to a dwelling. The N wall faces a track and has a boarded door under a brick segmental head offset towards the E end. The outer W and S walls have raking buttresses and low buttresses with offsets, while the W wall is partly repaired with concrete render. A ledge in the outer face of the W wall suggests that in its present form the orchard is the result of 2 phases of building. The inner faces of the W and N walls are brick. At the N end of the W wall is an inserted round-back, plaster-vaulted alcove, above which an ex situ sculpted stone head, of uncertain date but possibly medieval, has been inserted.
Listed as well-preserved orchard walls, a feature once common in the district, and for its contribution to the historic character of Graig Arthur Farm.
