Three pairs of gate piers and walls around gardens and terrace at Home Farm, Park Lane, Hampstead Marshall - West Berkshire (UA)

Two late C17 walled gardens (one with raised terrace) and three pairs of gate piers located in the north west corner of the park. Formerly the gardens to the C17 house which burnt down in 1718. Now forming the boundary walls to various private properties. Some sections have open joints. One of the gate piers has weed growth to the cornice and there is a large crack in one of the decorative urns, which puts the significance of the structure at risk. Repairs to this section need to take place.
