10/73 Riverside wall
north of Manor
Riverside wall and gatepiers. Medieval, remodelled and partly rebuilt in
early C19. Squared stone with cut dressings. Wall c.150 metres long, 5
metres high to river but only 1 metre internally. Gabled C19 coping with
occasional crenellations. Seen from across the river, a long stretch of
wall to the left has medieval masonry, including a corbelled-out projection
close to the attached gateway, extending to a little below the coping.
Central part, with steps down to water, entirely rebuilt. Right end part
with chamfered set-back at mid-height is probably medieval, and joins north-
west corner of walled yard of Manor House (q.v.). Internal face shows
attached gateway towards north end; the gatepiers have C15 or early C16
mouldings and later swept dips (ball finials missing) and may be an in-situ
remnant of a priory gatehouse.
Later attached wall to east of gatepiers is not of special interest.
