Boundary wall. Early C18, probably c.1711 for John Gore. Red brick, with
some blue bricks. A 2m high wall mostly in header bond, with special
rounded brick-on-edge copings. Built when main road diverted here from
crossing park to S of house. Earth swept up to garden side conceals wall
which itself was built to conceal traffic on the road where it crosses a
grand vista to N of house in vast landscaped scheme shown in
contemporary engraving. (Richards(1974)25).
