west of Windlestone
Garden wall. Probably early C19. English garden wall bend brick (4 and one)
with ashlar dressings and flat stone coping. Wall c.4 metres high forms north
boundary of former garden, and has central gateway of flat Doric pilasters
under entablature with triglyph frieze containing round-headed arch with
voussoirs in rusticated surround. Ball finials above these and other pilasters.
Low arch with radiating masonry at left end of wall. Occasional fragments of
sculpture incorporated into wall probably in C20. It may have been in this
wall that 2 Roman inscription stones were set, of which one is now in the
Bowes Museum, and one is lost.
