Description:Post Card view of the garden and southerly aspect of the house taken from near the current Ravenhill Park children's paddling pool. Note the topiary and glass house. Late 19th century Ordnance Survey maps show the garden extending to roughly where the park paddling pool is now situated, tapering to a narrow strip alongside the road extending as far as the entrance to Redbrook Lane. There appears to have a been a pool split by the road, presumably fed by the Redbrook stream. The portion in the gardens had a foot bridge. Note the window between the shrubs allowing access to the garden. The house was demolished in 1993.
