Listing Text

SX 46 NE
3/122 Garden retaining wall running
west-south-west to east-north-east
approximately 35m north-west of
Buckland Abbey


Garden retaining wall, originally formed part of the Abbey curtilage. Probably
medieval although the crenellation may date from a later period. Stone rubble.
Irregular plan, probably truncated at either end; from the evidence of several
arches and the original likely layout of the abbey buildings it seems probable that
this wall formed the curtilage wall to the abbey church adjoining buildings. The
stone arches are irregularly placed, of varying sizes and appear to be original.
The leanto rubble buttresses are C20.
