22/77 Cloisters ruin

north of Redbourne Hall
6.11.67 (formerly listed as
Cloisters ruin, Redbourne


Folly. Probably late C18 - early C19, incorporating re-used medieval or
later masonry, for Carter Estate or Duke of St Albans. Squared limestone
and coursed rubble with limestone ashlar dressings; some brick to blocked
section of window. North-south wall approximately 10 metres long, formerly
formed north end of screen wall adjoining arcaded screen wall approximately
60 metres north of Redbourne Hall (qv). West face: central gabled section,
approximately 5 metres long and 5 metres high, with quoins and pointed 2-
light window with blocked lower portion and foiled Y-traceried head; lower
section to right, approximately 3 metres long, with cross-shaped slit-window
in rough gable; short section of tumbled wall, approximately 2 metres long,
to left. Rear has portions of 2 rubble arches projecting at right angles
from central section. Section connecting with arcaded wall to south was
demolished c1980. The pointed window is similar to those in Redbourne
Church (qv), suggesting that the folly was built for Rev Robert Carter
Thelwall during the period of church rebuilding and Estate improvements in
1770s-80s. Alternatively the window may be a later insertion, from the
chapel on the south side of the chancel, converted to a mausoleum for the
Dukes of St Albans in the early C19. In decay at time of resurvey.
Adjoining buildings are of no special interest.
