Wallsend (Part 2)
Work continues on the western wall of the walled garden and we have just completed the end with its tricky "dutch gable". We were lucky to be given a photo from 1949 which showed the wall when it was last fully built. This allowed us to copy the shape, something we could only guess at before and it confirmed that it does actually mirror the other end by the house. It looks like the wall had been extended from its original length as it used to end at a turret which was situated just on the right of the picture.
