The northern walled garden still survives, subdivided into two by an E-W wall. The smaller western garden which had two ornamental summer houses attached to the walls at the W end has been largely demolished, though the wall dividing it from the N garden still survives. An orchard bounded the two gardens on the W side. Later crinkle-crankle wall in the garden (S2). Also see (S3) & S4).
