Details

NZ 22 SW HEIGHINGTON SHILDON ROAD (East side, off) 2/60 Walls and gate piers to east of Middridge Grange Farmhouse GV II Garden walls and pair of gate piers. Probably early C17 walls and late C17- early C18 gate piers. Coursed rubble walls and ashlar piers. Walls enclose a nearly-rectangular area known as The Orchard. 2.0 - 3.0-metre high walls, broken down and partly rebuilt in places. Wall, on rear of cart shed (q.v.), runs north for 30 metres, east for 55 metres, south for 70 metres and west for 55 metres and has short return section to pair of fragmentary gate piers, with chamfered rustication, attached to the farmhouse. All these walls have small, mostly-blocked triangular openings set low at c.3.0- metre intervals, said to be loop-holes for musket fire dating from the Civil War period; but could be wind vents preventing turbulence on the leeward side of the walls. Included for group value.
