GV II

Walled garden. Circa 1885. Brick wall with stone copings capped by ball finials at intervals surrounding garden. Wrought iron gates in south wall with ramified urns capping the flanking piers. In the north wall a large clock tower rises above the site of the orangery: it is brick with stone dressings, linked to the wall by curving balustrade. The tower rises for two stages above the wall with blank recessed archway in the first stage, statue in niche with shell motif above in architrave with broken pediment. Balustraded parapet. The tower is flanked to the south by paired symmetrical greenhouses, and behind it outside the garden area is a range of potting sheds etc., in a Dutch style, with shaped gables and gauged brickheads to mullioned and transomed windows. Bungalow in corner of garden is not of special interest.
