Hermitage Park
Hermitage Park
The structure in the left foreground is the park shelter. In the right background is the walled garden (NS2982 : Gate of a walled garden), with a short path (slightly more grey than the pinkish surface that is visible elsewhere) sloping down in front of its gate.

This picture is useful in explaining where Hermitage House stood. The near end of the house was where the shelter now stands. From there, the house extended back almost to the foot of the grey path that slopes down from the gate of the walled garden.
