The Walled Garden
The Walled Garden was originally a garden and shrubbery and walled garden for the manor house known as Trenant Park. The cottage and garden is clearly marked on the 1840 Tithe Map of Duloe. During the C19 it would have kept the kitchens well stocked with fresh fruit and vegetables.
The manor of Trenant is mentioned in Domesday when 4 farms were attached to it. Laterit was held in conjunction with the large Manor or Tremadart and passed, often in marriage, through many of the top families in the county including Hewis, Coleshill, Arundells, Whittingtons and Giffard. At a later period the whole became vested in the family of Treise. Sir Christopher Treise was sheriff in 1760 on the accession of George 3rd and was knighted when he presented a address to the throne. He bequeathed it to his sister, the mother of Sir John Morshead who was created a baronet in 1784. In 1806 Sir John sold the estate to Admiral Sir Edward Buller who was created a baronet in 1808. The Peel family (relatives of Sir Robert Peel) bought Trenant in 1839. Thomas Peel closed the public road up from the lodge to Duloe which ran through the estate and made a new road up Trenwith Hill to maintain his privacy. The original road runs behind The Walled Garden. He also built the bridge across the river at Terras Pill as several people had before then been drowned whilst crossing the old ford. Trenant remained the home of the Peel family till the death of William Peel (better known as 'Squire Peel') in the 1950's.
