English: Arch at entrance to walled kitchen garden Supporting several varieties of gourds (Cucurbita spec.) Gourds > http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/935471 are the fruits of various climbing plants in the Cucurbitaceae (cucumber) family, most of which originated in the tropics. More familiar plants in the same family are melons (Cucumis melo), squashes, pumpkins and marrows. Gourds are among the earliest cultivated plants, as they are of considerable value as sources of food, and for making utensils and ornaments. http://www.kew.org/ksheets/gourds.html Salle Hall > http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/935141 was built in 1761 for Edward Hase; alterations were made in 1862, and east and west service blocks were added in 1910 for Sir Woolmer White.
