Listing Text


672-1/6/16 Boundary wall to the west and north
11/10/72 of Glebe House


Boundary wall to Glebe House (q.v), formerly the vicarage.
Probably C18 or earlier, circa 1840 carriage/service entrance
on north side. Partly Posbury volcanic trap, partly roughcast
(probably cob) with slate coping; granite archway to carriage
entrance. The wall is about 3m high and curves in to the main
entrance to Glebe House in Church Street, where it is
constructed of small squared blocks of stone. This section may
be later than the remainder, which is roughcast on a stone
rubble plinth with a rounded corner at the junction of Church
Street and Belle Parade. On the Belle Parade side, to the
north of the house, it is gabled above a Gothic Revival
moulded granite 2-centred archway leading into the service
courtyard of the house. The doorway has a circa 1840 2-leaf
plank and cover strip door with an arched head.
Tall cob walls are an important part of the local character of
the East Town area of Crediton, around the parish church.
