Probably C17, and contemporary with the earliest brickwork of Garthgynan farmhouse.


Walled garden of Garthgynan, forming a rectangle of which the house closes the north side. Much of the walling consists of thin, handmade bricks of great irregularity; the east wall incorporates 14 small bee-boles, the west side 17.

A pyramid-roofed brickwork pavilion at the south west corner has been enlarged (C19?) to form a cottage; a similar pavilion probably existed at the south east corner, but has been demolished to the height of the garden wall. The surviving pavilion has a high level string course; a stone window frame facing east, blocked; a high level stone roundel with label mould facing north, also blocked; the south elevation has modern windows and there is a chimney set diagonally at the corner. The C19 extension to this building is in stone and brickwork with a slate roof and has an end chimney.

A small brickwork privy building at the north east corner has a monopitch roof, a re-used decorative stone frieze at the head of the wall and a door and window to the front.
