Architecture Notes

NS27SW 20.05 20637 72832

The feature at this location was formerly entered as the Formal Garden and Sundial, whose map reference has now been amended. See NS27SW 20.03.

First and second edition maps indicate that there was a sundial in the Walled Garden, but the sundials recorded by Somerville in 1982 were both located 'in the rose garden immediately behind the mansion house' (MS 5741/5/8). Photographic evidence shows that this area can be identified with the Formal Garden (NS27SW 20.03).
