Rockery adjacent II to Reeth Cottage

Rockery in walled enclosure 1906-14. By Messrs. Backhouse of York for Mr F S Graham. Rockery of limestone blocks; enclosure wall of rubblestone with cast-iron railings. Rockery comprises lumps of limestone placed in picturesque mounds with narrow paths between. Enclosure approx. 14 x 42 metres, has quoins, flat coping to return walls which ramp up hill-slope and triangular-sectioned coping to low front wall which is broken by gate with round-topped monolithic gate piers and is surmounted by hooped and bud-finialled railings, the gate being similar. On right return, rockery breaks through enclosure wall. Attached lean-to's not of special interest.

The rockery stones are reported to have been brought to this site from a field just to the west of the village. The builders, James Backhouse and Son, were well known rockery builders and alpine nurserymen from the late 1850s. ( The rockery houses a large and varied collection of alpine plants which is not cover- ed by the listing.)
