Walled kitchen garden to Tehidy House. Built by Francis Basset Lord de
Dunstanville about 1777-82. Handmade brick. Very large double rectangular
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
rear wall of hothouses (probably those built in 1780), and attached to the north
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
of white stone (probably Portland stone), with square base and vase pedestal, but
now lacking the plate and gnomon. At the south-east corner of the east garden
is the rear wall of White Cottage (q.v.). Reference: Michael Tangye Tehidy and
the Bassets (1984) pp 32-35.
