17th Century Doorway

At the southern end of the path is the restored mid-late 17th century doorway. The original doorway survived right up to the City Council restoration, only to collapse once acquired. There would have been an identical doorway at the other end of the terrace. Turn left and walk up along the south wall of the Upper Walled Garden.

This narrow strip of land is described as a garden in 1838, though no details of its layout, if any, are known.

Arrive at the gates to the Upper Walled Garden, where our tour concludes.
