enclosure surrounded by walls approx. 4 metres high, those of the west garden
with pilasters at regular intervals; segmental-headed doorways, some blocked; in
the centre of the north side of the east garden are the foundations and plastered

wall of the west garden is a long but shallow greenhouse with steeply-pitched
roof and a door at the east end. At the centre of the east garden is a sundial
