Kitchen Garden bounding wall
and Gardener's Cottage
Kitchen garden wall and gardener's cottage. Wall maybe early
C17 (Swarbrick), cottage maybe 1702; both are shown on J.
Harris's painting of 1751. English garden wall bond
brickwork, stone dressings and copings and stone slate roof.
The wall is roughly square in plan with gateways at the
centre of each side and the Gardener's Cottage forming part
of the north-west side. The wall has buttresses at regular
intervals, a roll-moulded weathered stone coping, heating
flues in the north-west side and a south-west gateway which
is advanced, has a segmental-headed recessed arch and a
raised coping (c.1750). The Gardener's Cottage is 3 x 1 bay
with 2 storeys and a mono-pitched roof. The elevations are
symmetrical, the outer one having a central door with plain
stone surround, a 2-light chamfered mullion window on either
side and 3 small casement above. The gables are coped with
kneelers and the ridge has a stone cornice coping. The
garden side has a central segmental-headed cart entry (now
door) with keystones and a total of 5 2-light stone
chamfered mullion windows. J. Swarbrick, "Dunham Massey
