Listing Text

SX 98 SE LYMPSTONE CHURCH ROAD (south side),
Lympstone
5/24 Wall adjoining Southerleigh and
- extending east on the south side
of Church Road
GV II

Garden wall. Possibly C16 or later. Red sandstone coursed rubble, with some brick
and limestone. Remains of a chamfered plinth which returns at the west end; remains
of chamfered coping, with brick upper parts in Flemish bond. East corner with upper
courses in limestone. The east perimeter wall enclosing the garden of Southerleigh
(q.v.) is later, of brick, with coursed limestone towards the south end. The
original function of the sandstone stretch of walling remains uncertain; there are
no indications on either side of former abutments or embrasures. What detailing
there is suggests a C16 or C17 date. The wall contributes to an attractive group
comprising The Redwing Public House, Southerleigh, Varnes and Shepherds (all q.v.).
