English Heritage Listing
A partial assessment of the walls surrounding the Nantwich Walled Garden was undertaken by English Heritage (EH) in 2006, which led to their being categorised as Grade II listed. A full re-assessment was undertaken in late 2014, and in early 2015 EH confirmed the Grade II listing (except the missing section of the west wall) and amended and amplified the designation in their listing record due to the garden’s historical and architectural interest, early date of construction and the materials used. The Nantwich Walled Garden Society was particularly pleased that the report reaffirms EH’s earlier statement on the historical national significance of the Nantwich Walled Garden. This, along with its inclusion in the Nantwich Conservation Area, ensures that the current and any future owner of the site must retain and ensure future maintenance of the walls. Unfortunately this does not at present directly assist with the Nantwich Walled Garden Society’s objective to restore the garden, as the site is still owned by a property developer.
