Heath conservation village - ha-ha fronting Heath Hall
The grade II listed ha-ha fronting Heath Hall. Mid-late C18, possibly by John Carr the architect of Heath Hall, using Hammer-dressed stone and ashlar coping. In landscape-gardening, the ha-ha is a boundary to a garden designed not to interrupt a view from e.g. a country-house. It consists of a ditch with side nearest the viewpoint perpendicular faced with brick or stone, and the other side sloped and turfed. It kept animals away from the gardens, yet was concealed.
