Adjacent to the south west corner of the gardens to Cruck Barn is situated an attractively landscaped, fenced and gated section which houses the sunken communal LPG storage tank and sunken communal private drainage system (maintenance and refuelling contractors for the two tanks have right of access to these fenced areas).
