Garden wall at Snitterton Hall, South Darley, originally built in the 17th century.
During a watching brief carried out in 2010, the wall was partially dismantled and rebuilt. While this work took place, a date stone of 1861 was uncovered, that demonstrated the 17th century wall had been either repaired or rebuilt at that time, coinciding with the construction of a rectangular stone garden building.
