Walls at The Oaks
TQ 2761 SW 42/254
TQ 2761 SE 43/254
Late C18 to Cl9. On south side, grotto set in central recess with high red brick rear
and flanking walls. Two-light casement windows in the flanking walls, some with small
panes; these light the two ranges of red brick, lean-to outbuildings with slate roofs
which are built against the north side of the flanking walls. The north walls of the
outbuildings have segementally headed windows, six panes wide and four deep with centre
pivot lights; flat headed doorways. Flanking walls included on account of the grotto.
From late C18 to 1834, the Oaks was occupied by the Earls of Derby, their house at the
Oaks having been substantially built in late C18 by the twelfth Earl who died in 1834.
The house was demolished circa 1957-60. For a brief history of the Oaks estate, see
