Additional Information

A walled garden is shown on 1856/7 OS map to north of Laverton Hall, and is also depicted but as an orchard on 1909 OS map. Today it is a garden extension with maybe 2 fruit trees and some mature deciduous trees on the boundary. A public footpath runs alongside the west wall. Some interesting wall features were noted.
