SU OO NW WOODLANDS WOODLANDS FARM
5/166 Retaining wall 40 m
north west of Woodlands
16.5.85 Farm House
Retaining wall. Early C16 or earlier, raised c.1710 and C19. Large squared
stone blocks laid to courses; raised in thin red bricks laid English bond (C18)
and larger bricks laid Flemish bond (C19). Extends south towards west wall
of north block of house (5/163), and east in line with north end of Woodlands
Farmhouse. Probably originated as north west corner of range parallel to present
farmhouse part of same building as north part of 5/163, but different materials
suggest possibility of yet earlier origin. Raising of c.1710 (dated by com-
parison with other buildings on site) probably connected with reconstruction of
early range as one of two office ranges flanking approach to main house of
c.1710; demolished by c.1840 after which what survives has functioned as a
retaining wall. Two offset foundation courses, returning eastwards parallel
to slope of ground to meet level square offset which on west defines a plinth.
