13/7 Garden Walls at South Hill
Kitchen garden walls. C18 and C19. Mainly brick, same stone rubble. A complete
quadrangle of walls lying immediately east of North Hall Cottages (not included
in the listing), enclosed to north and east by hedgerow and 'fossel about 5m
wide. North and south sides extend about 20 metres, west 60 metres and east
85 metres. Walls to west, south, and east are in brickwork, usually English
bond, but some Plemish bond in west wall; the north wall has rubble externally
but is lined internally with brick. Copings in brick or in rendered brick or
stone. On west side, centrally, an opening flanked by pier and with flat segmenta
head; on east side a small opeining with segmental head, also a lean-to unit
externally in two rooms with central door flanked by opening each side, facing
into gardens. Plinth with moulded offset brick rises to c.1.5m on east side,
various external piers of shallow projections, wall rises to c.3.5m at highest
point which is the swept-up north-west corner, elsewhere c.2.5 to 3m. Two rating
buttreses near west end of north wall. At time of inspection the interior space
heavily overgrown (April 1988) and internal surfaces inspected only in part.
Much of the brickwork looks like C18 work of high quality.
