The quotation comes from Charlotte Brontë – Jane Eyre (Chap. 31) | Genius

Quotation: I hid my eyes, and leant my head against the stone frame of my door; but soon a slight noise near the wicket which shut in my tiny garden from the meadow beyond it made me look up. A dog—old Carlo, Mr. Rivers’ pointer, as I saw in a moment—was pushing the gate with his nose, and St. John himself leant upon it with folded arms; his brow knit, his gaze, grave almost to displeasure, fixed on me. I asked him to come in.

Hi everyone! I don’t quite understand the bold part. Does it mean as below?

The sentence = the wicket shut in my tiny garden, separating the garden from the meadow beyond the garden. A slight noise near the wicket made me look up.
