Early C19 garden wall reusing earlier, possibly C17 bricks, mirroring the design of an adjacent C17 wall.


Garden wall, early C19.

Reused C17 orange-red brick that is irregularly bonded. Flat stone coping.

The wall is generally 2-3m high and runs south from the south east corner of the Talbot Hotel (that part formally forming the house The Cloisters) for about 25m. It has pilaster buttresses on its west side and the wall top is ramped as it climbs over the top terrace to the rear of York House (q.v.).


The garden wall is thought to have been built after Burton's 1809 estate map but before Nicholson's 1823 engraving to form the eastern garden wall of the newly constructed villa called The Cloisters. This villa is thought to have been built for the manager of the Talbot Hotel (of which it is now a part - see NHLE 1202751). The wall subdivided the gardens of York House (see NHLE 1290865) first laid out for Sir William Strickland in the late C17 and was designed to sympathetically match York House's eastern garden wall (see NHLE 1220709). The wall appears to be on approximately the same line as an earlier boundary shown on the 1730 Dickinson map, possibly the boundary to 43 Yorkersgate when this was a separate property in the C17.

Reasons for Listing

The early C19 garden wall is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Garden design: preserving the approximate line of a boundary forming part of the C17 garden design for York House, as well as demonstrating an early C19 modification of that garden, reusing earlier bricks;
* Group Value: particularly with the Grade II* listed York House with which the wall contributes in terms of setting, mirroring the design of its eastern boundary wall.
