Front garden walls including - storehouse south of Livenhayes Farmhouse.

Garden walls and store room. Probably early or mid-19th century. Local stone and flint rubble, the storehouse has a roof of interlocking tiles. The front garden of Livenhayes Farmhouse (q.v) is enclosed by a low stone rubble wall. It forms a terrace and therefore the eastern side wall also revets the terrace. In the south- west corner is a small 2-storey storehouse facing north towards the farmhouse. Its front has a single 2-light window on each floor; both are plain unglazed with internal shutters. To right is a doorway with a plank door. The roof is gable- ended and on the left end is a lean-to privy. These walls with the store house are important to the appearance of Livenhayes Farmhouse.
