OAK HILL LANE
Rockwork garden feature approx.80-150m south-east of Oakhill

GV
II

Rockery feature. c.1900. Constructed of Pulhamite. A long feature descending in former pools and rockeries down the slope below Oakhill (qv). The feature is much covered with undergrowth at present but was originally approx. 100m. long. That part most clearly visible is below the midpoint and is approx. 10m. wide and 25m. long and drops c.6m.in a series of what were formerly pools.
This feature is an unusually large example of Pulhamite rockwork to be found in a private garden of the period. A sale catalogue of c.1920 has an illustration and describes it as a rockery cascade entitled 'The Glen'. The 1926/7 revision of the OS map clearly marks the feature and shows the extent.
