5/55 Wall with doorways to the south
and east of the Church of
St Giles


Wall. Probably C17. Coursed squared and dressed limestone faced
in ashlar on the south. 'L'-shaped plan comprising an east - west
and a north - south section both c25m in length. The wall formerly
screened Coberley Court, demolished 1790, from the church and
originally formed part of a more extensive network. Viewed from
the south from left to right: round-headed doorway with a dressed
moulded surround, pulvinated frieze and a triangular pediment which
formerly opened into a walled formal garden to the west of Coberley
Court; early graffiti representing a bearded man; traces of a
return wall formerly running southwards; low round-headed doorway,
now blocked, with a moulded surround, keystone and imposts which
formerly opened into the garden immediately north of Coberley
Court; single-light splayed window with a moulded and lugged
surround to the right; similar window on the east facing side of
the wall close to the corner which has banded rustications.
Battlements with roll-moulded merlons and embrasures remain on part
of the north - south section. (Engraving of c1712 by Kip in
Atkyn's The History of Gloucestershire; also shown in V.C.H.
Gloucestershire, Vol VII)
