Full Description

Walled garden of former Wingerworth Hall, off Hockley Lane, Wingerworth, dating to at least c1835. The walled garden is c450m south of the site of the former hall, and is shown clearly on Sanderson's map of 1835, along with The Garden House on its eastern side. (1) It is shown on the Hunloke Estate map of 1864. It is on the 1st edition 25" OS map of 1880, where it is shown subdivided into three walled compartments or terraces, with an additional enclosure surrounding it, and extending to include an orchard area at its south edge. There are glasshouses marked in the northernmost and southern walled compartment, and a long rectangular building along the northern wall that appears to still be extant. Those features and buildings are still marked on the 3rd edition 25" OS map of 1946. Since that time, the complex stopped functioning as a working walled garden, and although the walls still stand, current aerial imagery (Google Earth) shows them to be overgrown, and the interior areas covered with scrub. The former glasshouses are no longer extant. According to Google imagery (Google Earth), a house-sized building was erected in the northwestern corner of the walled area between 2020 and 2022, in addition to a smaller possible shed, outbuilding, or garage immediately to it's west.
