Short Description:
N-S aligned potential Tudor garden wall
Issued to

402

Interpretation

    • N-S aligned segment of likely Tudor formal garden boundary wall. Very roughly finished and constructed using a dry stone wall method. The western (internal) face appears to be partially robbed away indicating potential re use of stone elsewhere. It is expected and assumed that this is the continuation of the same wall visible in Trench 8 - (8005)
