Kitchen garden walls and attached summer house. Probably late C16 walls and aid
C19 summer house for the Seventh Earl of Cardigan. Red brick walls with burnt
headers. Limestone ashlar summer house, The walls, which have a battered brick
and soldier course coping, enclose an irregular triangular area which is
subdivided internally into 4 separate areas by similar walls. Each area is
linked by an arched opening in the walls. Sections of wall have been rebuilt,
probably during the C19 and early C20, The summer house, attached to the west
end of the kitchen garden walls, is an octagonal, castellated turret of 2
storeys. The south-east and west facing elevations have 2-light mullion windows,
with arch-head lights. Similar doorway at ground floor. Flat roof probably of
lead. An octagonal castellated stair turret is attached to the rear. The garden
layout is shown on C17 and C18 estate maps. A further wall, to the south, was
removed to form a bowling green. The Third Earl of Cardigan consulted van de
Meulen about the layout of the gardens in early C18.
