639-1/13/475 Walls to The Priory Hotel
(Formerly Listed as:
Boundary Walls of Babwell Friary)
Walls, partly boundary walls to the present property but also
with a length of wall relating to the former Babwell Friary,
refounded on this site in the 1260s. Part medieval, part C18
and C19. In flint, brick and stone. A 45-metre stretch in a
mixture of brick, flint and stone with old mortar and a sloped
coping extends from the south-west corner of The Priory Hotel
(qv) and then turns north-east along the Tollgate Lane towards
Thetford Road for c150 metres.
The varied north-east stretch is approximately 2 metres high:
mainly in rubble flint with red brick coping, but also with a
mixture of old red brick; one section has red brick banding.
Linked to this boundary stretch and extending diagonally from
it inside the grounds is a 100-metre length of Friary wall.
Approximately 3 metres high, in rubble flint with an inserted
pointed-arched doorway in C18 white brick. To the north of the
house the wall extends for about 170 metres along the
Mildenhall Road: more than 3 metres high, in coursed and
random flint, divided into bays by 'pilasters' of C20 brick.
The Babwell Friary remains are a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
