Details

HAUXLEY HIGH HAUXLEY NU 20 SE 8/137 Garden wall to east of Hauxley Hall, with attached summerhouse GV II Garden wall and summerhouse. Wall late C18, summerhouse probably early C20 re-using old materials. Wall brick in irregular, largely stretcher bond, with stone coping and roughly-coursed stone rear face. Summerhouse brick with roof of red fish-scale tiles. 3.5-metre high wall runs north from north-east corner of Hall (q.v.), with gap for C20 drive, then turns east alongside road; flat stone coping replaced by cement in places, swept up at east end. Short southward return 5 metres high with 3 external set backs.

Half-glazed summerhouse has open porch with banded piers carrying separate swept hipped roof.

Historical note: This length of wall probably formed the back of the 'long glass house' built by John Widdrington so that 'his delicate south-country wife might take exercise without exposure to the east wind' (Northumberland County History V p.308).

C20 greenhouse built against wall, and altered length of wall further to east, are not of special interest.
