(south side, off)
Garden walls at north-
west end of garden to
Munstead Wood

Garden walls. Late C19 for Gertrude Jekyll. Bargate rubblestone. Tall main
wall crosses garden from south-west (Brighton Road) to north-east; near its
south-western end a spur wall runs to the south-east; on its north-west side
another, lower, wall runs from it in a north-easterly direction (towards
Heath Lane); half-way along this spur wall another low wall links it back to the
main wall, so forming a triangular enclosed garden. The main wall is approx 4
metres high with domed oversailing coping; near its centre it ramps up over a
round-arched entrance with a nail-studded, iron hinged, board door, on the
south-west side the entrance being set in a pent-roofed projection; the spur
wall which runs to the south-east is similar, with a round-arched entrance; C20
greenhouse and brick shed attached to walling at south-west end not of special
interest. The north-easterly-running spur wall and the wall which links this to
the main wall are approx. 1 metre high, the former having 2 gateways in it and
the latter one. This walling formed part of Gertrude Jekyll's garden at
Munstead Wood (q.v. Busbridge Parish), the garden being listed as grade I in the
Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England (part 40,
