Walls enclosing garden of Vicarage (qv) and running along
Newgate on the north, Parson's Lonnen on the east, the Demesne
on the south, and the length of the garden on the west.
Probably early C19 with c1852 kitchen garden wall and gate
piers. Rubble with ashlar piers; quoins to door at south west.
Square piers at entrance to vicarage have pyramidal ashlar
coping. From these, the wall running along Newgate is approx

coping on wall along Parson's Lonnen which is approx 2m high
and is interrupted by an inserted entrance in southern half.
West wall is high with brick lining to the kitchen garden at
the north end. South wall has ramped raised section over
blocked doorway with quoins at south west corner of garden.
This wall continues at height of approx 1.5m until the corner
to the Lonnen is turned, when it is ramped up to the higher
The whole garden wall plays an important part in the landscape
and the townscape. On the south it is on high ground at the
top of the Demesne beside the River Tees and to east of the
rear of The Bank. On the north it forms the south edge of the
street and with the listed walls to Spring Lodge (qv), Birch
Road (qv) and the Bowes Musem (qv) maintains the historic
character of this approach to the town. Linking the two,
Parson's Lonnen is flanked by this wall and the walls of
Spring Lodge.
