Battlemented, sandstone ashlar garden-wall, built 1806 to1819 by Smirke. It encloses the north terrace of Lowther Castle, at the centre of the extensive registered park. The wall's repair is a component of the initiative, led by the Lowther Castle and Gardens Trust, to create a major visitor attraction. Major repair works funded by the former North West Development Agency are now nearing completion.
