Full description

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

Landscaped grounds shown to south and east of the house, a walled garden and orchard to north-east. Map object based on this source.


Delderfield, E., 1978, Anyone for Tennis - Behind a 15 Foot High Wall (Article in Serial). SDV361941.

The house is described circa 1825 as backed by a rookery of elms and approached by an avenue of limes but otherwise surrounded by a stone wall and laurel hedges. The garden wall is about 15 feet high and was apparently raised to this height [circa 1930] to block the view of the tennis courts from the vicarage so the vicar could not see games being played on a Sunday.

GetMapping, 2010, GetMapping 2010 aerial photographs (Aerial Photograph). SDV351585.
