PORTLAND

SY67SE GROVE ROAD, Grove
969-1/1/131 (North side)
Boundary wall along N side

GV II

Boundary wall, enclosing quarry workings. C19. Rough coursed
rubble to a flush rounded coping. The wall begins c 20m W from
No 1, Grove Road, on the opposite side of the road and runs
continuously c 400m to the E, returning to a gate pier (qv) at
the entry to Incline Road. Height c 2.2m, the upper two
courses of squared stone have been added at some stage to what
was a lower wall; there is a break in construction opposite No
30, Grove Road, where a field boundary marks the edge of the
quarry, and this is marked also by a boundary stone with
incised anchor, one of a series of Admiralty markers on the
island. The wall is important in establishing the identity and
continuity of the street, which on its south side is contained
by a continuous row of buildings; it also continues beyond the
entry to Incline Road (see entry for Ivybank).
