SD4061 BARROWS LANE, Heysham 939-1/7/10 Walls at Heysham Head to south of 06/04/79 house (Formerly Listed as: BARROWS LANE Walls at Heysham Head to S of house between new wing & rose garden)

GV II

Garden walls. Probably early-to-mid C19 and early-to-mid C20, reusing some C18 stonework. Sandstone rubble. The southern wall contains a Tudor-arched gateway with a 3-light mullioned window to its right. A flight of stone steps to its right leads to an upper level beyond the western wall. This western wall extends towards the north and contains 3 niches with statues. On the north side the garden is enclosed by a wall which contains 3 moulded sandstone arches with keystones, carried on 4 columns with Doric capitals. The western column of the middle arch is buttressed. The western garden wall extends north beyond this northern wall, where it returns towards the west parallel with Heysham Head House (qv) and contains a blocked doorway with moulded arched head. Above the doorway is a niche. From the western end of this wall a wall containing 2 blocked chamfered doorways extends northwards to meet the south-west corner of the house. Demolition of C20 additions to the house have resulted in some late C20 rebuilding of the wall. Heysham Head House was originally known as Heysham Lodge and was bought in 1923 by Septimus Wray who opened the grounds to the public as Heysham Head Old English Gardens.
