Walled Garden Walls

The Walled Garden was the first feature of the 18th century garden to be completed in 1707 and it is now the oldest surviving feature. Due to its age amongst other factors, there are areas of very loose and unstable brickwork and decayed coping stones.

The large decaying coping stones were replaced with stones that weigh up to 600kg and were around 800-900mm in depth, a huge feat!

There is over 885 meters of walled Garden, some of them are up to 1m in depth! This is why this is a multi-year project which may take up to 10 years. Phase 1 is complete and the spend is planned at £150,000 per year. The cavities within the walls were designed to be heated to allow for fruits and vegetables to grow all year round and ripen naturally.
