Listing Text

BOMERE HEATH C.P. A528 (east side)
SJ 51 NW
7/50 Moat retaining wall
- and bridge approx. 10
metres to south of
Albright Hussey


Moat retaining wall and bridge. Probably C15 or C16 retaining wall,
and probably C16 or C17 bridge. Dressed grey sandstone retaining wall.
Approximately 60 metres long, returning to the north for a short
distance at the east end. Dressed grey sandstone bridge with small
round arch and chamfered coping. The parapet has probably been rebuilt
at a later date. The retaining wall and bridge are certainly of different
dates (see straight joints). Albright Hussey (q.v.) was probably formerly
moated on 4 sides. The remaining sections to the south and south east,
with retaining wall and bridge, are still partially water filled.
