The collapsed wall in Dr Jenner's Garden, Berkeley, has been rebuilt after fundraising efforts raised the £15,000 needed.
The boundary wall collapsed after heavy frosts and the majority of funding was provided by The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust.
Karen Bruff, Operations Manager at Dr Jenner's House, said: "Without this grant we would not have been able to complete the work. A plaque will be installed to recognise the generous support of The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust."
The wall was restored by Aldridges who used lime-based mortar to secure specially processed bricks to give a rustic and aged appearance. They were also able to achieve a close match to the adjacent original sections of wall that remain.
