4/129 Kitchen garden walls south of
- Clowance Farmhouse


Kitchen garden walls. Circa early C19 with some reused C17 fragments. Stone rubble with granite dressings, the principal wall dividing the farm from the gardens, with brick facing to the south side. Some reused C17 dressed granite fragments. Irregular rectangular enclosure with a wall at each side plus 2 rectangular walled enclosures outside the most northerly corner. Entrance to main enclosure midway in the east side and in the north side and entrances to the smaller enclosures in the west sides and east sides. The principal north wall of the main enclosure is brick faced to the inner (south) side, laid to Flemish bond, a blind arcade with brick piers and with the brick coping carried on shallow elliptical arches springing from the piers. The rear is rubble with granite dressings to the piers and some ball finials surviving. The north
entrance through this wall has a low pitched gable coping carried on an elliptical brick arch over granite piers, framing a small doorway slightly recessed with a segmental brick arch and with the original 6-panel doorway with chamfered stiles and rails and wrought iron HL hinges. The other walls are mostly rubble with granite dressings to the openings. The wall dividing the 2 smaller enclosures is brick to the upper part, pierced with small ventilation holes. The west entrance of the north enclosure (the garden of Pheasant Cottage qv) is a low doorway fitted with a reused 4-panel section of a C18 fielded panelled door, possibly originally from Clowance House.
These garden walls are an integral part of the Clowance estate and form part of a
group with the buildings of Clowance Farm.
