A unique Georgian garden has been unearthed during an archaeological dig in Jersey.

The discovery was made at a National Trust town house in St Helier during a project undertaken by Societe Jersiaise, BBC News reported.

According to the news outlet, the layout of the original garden at the building was discovered, as well as pottery dating back to the same period.

"The discovery has delighted historians who have been trying to find the details of the original front garden, which dates back to 1800," added the BBC.

However, spokesman John Clark said that if the National Trust was to restore the garden, it would only be able to do part of it as an adjacent road had swallowed up part of the original garden.

Homeowners and organisations seeking to improve garden areas could also choose to erect stylish garden buildings like a log cabin or summer house. The National Trust has so far spent more than £1 million on restoring the town house.
