Kitchen garden walls and glasshouse. 1843-4; by Charles Fowler, for the Tenth Earl of Devon. Red brick on stone rubble plinth, and slate capping. Flat brick buttresses on the outer sides of the walls. Arched doorways in south and west walls. The walls enclose a kitchen garden, irregular on plan and tapering to a corner at the west end. On the north side facing south there are circa mid C19 glasshouses with original ventilation winding gear and cast-iron heating pipes.
NOTE: The walls were built to provide work for local labourers, and it was constructed of bricks re-used from the earlier walled garden north of Powderham Castle.
