1733. Near rectangular-plan walled garden on sloping site (approximately 6300m?). Coped red brick wall encloses site; NE wall designed as a 'hot wall'; glasshouses (mostly demolished, some modern replacements) built against NE wall in the mid 19th century. Timber doors to all entrances (iron gate to SW elevation). Range of lean-to storage sheds to outer NE wall; stepped terracing to outer SW wall; ball finials (many broken or missing) to piers.

Statement of Interest

Stands adjacent to Canal Cottage (see separate list description). The garden is particularly noticeable for its distinctive 'hot walls' (flues from a boiler ran between 2 skins of wall and the warmth protected fruit and plants from early frosts) and the stepped terracing to the outer SW wall is of particular quality.
