dividing gardens of Nos.1 and
4 Manor Cottages continuing to

together; tied together with iron clamps and backed by wooden rail to section
around Nos.1 and 4, Manor Cottages (q.v.) backed by iron railings to remainder.
Encloses and divides gardens of Nos.1 and 4 Manor Cottages and separates garden
of No.4 from field to east. Continues to south-east along road to Garden Cottage
(q.v.) , part of whose garden it separates from field to north. A short section
of similar fence (not included in this list) in front of Ernest Gimson's Village
Hall (q.v.) and its presence around Nos.1 and 4, Manor Cottages, also designed
by Gimson, suggest that it may have been installed at his direction. No other
such fences are found in the immediate vicinity. Forms an important part of the
village scene. Included for group value.
