This gap in the earthwork terrace was created when Shaw House was a school and there was a gymnasium and a swimming pool here. In the northern side you can see some brickwork that might have been part of the foundation of this bit of the terrace or perhaps a repair.
You are now in what was Shaw House’s Kitchen Garden. It is now a community garden with a grass amphitheatre, which was dug in November 2016. The building on the west side used to be a coach house. Because of its English bond brickwork, it has been dated to about 1860. It is used by Trinity School as a workshop and store.
Turn right and follow the path towards the car park.
