A garden wall with sculpted panels and figures, made in the third quarter of the nineteenth century, with the wall rebuilt in the twentieth century. The panels are by Samuel Swift of Cawthorne. The work features a squared rubble wall, stone panels and figures, a central gateway, and two reliefs embedded into a wall, based on 'The Feed' and 'The Sick Dog' from the paintings by J. F. Herring. 'The Sick Dog' depicts a man tending to a dog behind which another dog is howling. 'The Feed' depicts two men feeding two horses. It is the former house of Swift brothers, masons who used the house to showcase examples of their work. Within the gateway to the left is a similar panel showing a boy beside a sarcophagus and to the right, a knight on horseback entitled 'GODFREY OF BOUILLON'.
