8/126 Garden walls immediately east of
- No. 31, (Cross Tree House)


Walls enclosing detached garden of Cross Tree House (q.v.), to east side of house.
Probably mainly C18, but possibly incorporating earlier material from the medieval
hospital founded in circa 1450.
Granite rubble with shaped brick coping. In parts the lower courses of the wall
are thicker. High wall rising to about 5 metres high and enclosing a rectangular
garden approximately 30 metres by 15 metres. The south-east, south-west and north-
west corners are indented. Brick segmental arch gateway on west side to lane over
which side door to house is reached. The churchyard is on the north side where the
ground is at higher level, and Cross Street is on the south side. Garden to rear
of the Almshouses (q.v.), are on the east side and on the west side there is a
churchyard lane which separates the garden from Cross Tree House.
Apart from the possibility of there being earlier fabric incorporated, these walls
have considerable group value by the church and the Almshouses.
