The pathway continues to the large wooden storage shed, wood store and then blends into a walkway into the woods. There is extensive outside lighting throughout the garden area.

The more formal garden contains the circular and segmented vegetable patch which is well stocked and currently contains, beans, rhubarb, beetroot and pumpkins to name a few - wild strawberry bushes are scattered around the perimeter.
