as The Town Walls)
City walls. Mainly C13 and C14, incorporating Roman remains,
with later patching and partial rebuilding. The 4 surviving
stretches are distinguished on the map as 7/2A (off The Common),
9/2B (off Free School Lane), 9/2C (enclosing City Ditch) and 9/2D
(off St Margaret's Street. None have post office addresses.
7/2A runs N/S for about 30 metres and is in a fragmentary state
with little facing stone surviving, some parts underpinning later
structures. 9/2B is the most impressive and upstanding section
incorporating the NE circular bastion (of 2 storeys with 3
lancets to upper stage). The upper courses of the wall attached
are largely rebuilt; a short stretch retains coped merlons.
9/2C, rebuilt when the city walls were pushed further out in the
Mid C14 retains the SE bastion, much reduced. 9/2D is short and
much renewed. Scheduled Ancient Monument.
