Created by the Filles de la Sagesse within the trees south of North Jesmond House (HER 10118). It is 20th century in date and is a reproduction of Lourdes. The statue of Mary has been relocated to Usher Hall. Recorded 2013 by Archaeological Services Durham University. The grotto was covered in ivy when recorded. Kerbs, small concrete urns and crazy paving in the undergrowth show the extent of a sort of formal area at the front.
