English garden wall bond brickwork, stone dressings and copings and stone slate roof. The wall is roughly square in plan with gateways at the centre of each side and the Gardener's Cottage forming part of the north-west side. The wall has buttresses at regular intervals, a roll-moulded weathered stone coping, heating flues in the north-west side and a south-west gateway which is advanced, has a segmental-headed recessed arch and a raised coping (c.1750). The Gardener's Cottage is 3 x 1 bay with 2 storeys and a mono-pitched roof. The elevations are symmetrical, the outer one having a central door with plain stone surround, a 2-light chamfered mullion window on either side and 3 small casement above. The gables are coped with kneelers and the ridge has a stone cornice coping. The garden side has a central segmental-headed cart entry (now door) with keystones and a total of 5 2-light stone chamfered mullion windows. J.
