Doldowlod was purchased by the engineer James Watt of Soho, Birmingham, in 1803 and was developed as a country residence by his son James Watt junior (1769-1848) of Birmingham in the second quarter of the C19. The present house was built in the 1840s as an extension to an existing farmhouse, which was demolished when the house was further extended in the 1870s. The garden walls were constructed in the 1870s.


An L-shaped garden wall is attached to the NW end of the house, of rubble stone with freestone coping. It has a square pier to the angle, and similar gate piers leading to the yard on the N side of the house. The wall continues on the NW side of the house, forming the boundary of the formal garden, and then continues as a ha-ha of rock-faced stone oriented in a NW-SE direction, parallel with the front of the house. The ha-ha has a slightly recessed gateway with square piers and wooden posts to a barred wooden gate. Further R are lately added steps, directly in front of the entrance to the house, and the ha-ha continues to the end of the formal garden, beyond which it continues as a rubble-stone field wall.
