The kitchen garden wall is an important surviving element of a landscaping commission carried out by William Emes in the late-18th century. Its semicircular plan is most unusual and it forms an impressive sweeping curve of considerable aesthetic appeal. The impressive height of the wall, together with the evidence of smoke-blackened flues, strongly suggests that it was a high status heated wall for growing peaches, apricots and other similar fruit.
