Merrixton House Farm

Introduction

The house at Merrixton House Farm was built about 1750. The gardens of that time were substantially altered in around 1880. A row of lime trees is possibly from this period. There are terraces and an unusual viewing mound within an enclosed garden adjacent to the house, as well as a parish lock-up.
