3/134 Retaining wall and
adjoining servants' tunnel
about 65 yards north-west
of Hanbury Hall
Retaining wall and adjoining servants' tunnel. Wall of early C18 origins,
remodelled in mid-C19 when tunnel added. Brick in English garden wall bond
and including some handmade bricks with sandstone copings. Roughly a quad-
rant about 25 yards long with return at east end and adjoining tunnel entrance
at north end. The tunnel is built of partly blue brick, is vaulted and runs
about 20 yards west; the walls to the west end entrance are splayed and
terminate in short square piers. The retaining wall was originally linked to
one of a pair of pavilions forming a boundary between the formal garden lay-
out by George London and the pond and deer park beyond; the original layout
is clearly illustrated in a perspective drawing of 1732 by Joseph Dougharty.
