Terraced Garden.

The terraced garden. Much of the stonework used in the construction of this garden came from the demolition of Stockbriggs House. Some of the features of Stockbriggs have been incorporated into the walls. The piece in the foreground is possibly a section of the large chimneys that were on the house.
