Kitchen garden wall and attached ruined outbuilding at north end approx. 15m south-east of Preen Manor

GV

II

Kitchen garden wall. Circa 1870 by Richard Norman Shaw. Coursed
limestone rubble and red brick, machine tile gabled capping. Approximately
130m in length with 14 gabled brick buttresses, west side is brick-
faced; pointed double-chamfered gateway to centre with original heavy
panelled double doors; the north end is stepped up to meet the attached
and earlier rectangular outbuilding: uncoursed limestone rubble, now
roofless with buttresses on each of long sides; 3 segmental-headed
brick openings at ground level (possibly inserted by Shaw) also on long
sides. The outbuilding now encloses a sunken garden, but the stonework
suggests it may originally have been associated with Preen Priory (q.v.
under Church of St John the Baptist). Preen Manor, built in c.1870-1
by Norman Shaw for Arthur Sparrow, but subsequently largely demolished
and re-built, is not included. Andrew Saint, Richard Norman Shaw (1976),
p.408.
