673-1/5/180 (South side)
Rear boundary wall including gateway
to No.1 (No.1 not included)


Boundary wall. Uncertain date. It was in existence by the mid
C18 when it was depicted in a topographical painting (see
sources) and might have been in use in the Civil War. Built of
stone rubble with granite coping, one section includes some
C18 brick.
Tall crenellated wall, mostly around 2m high but much higher
in places, with ridged granite coping. Most of front wall has
been replaced, surviving adjacent to No.1 Mount Boone. As it
curves round the corner onto Mount Boone Hill there is a large
gateway; square piers with chamfered corners of red sandstone
ashlar, stepped caps and large ball finials. As it follows the
irregular course of Mount Boone Hill and returns along the
rear of the gardens along Mount Boone Lane there are various
gateways knocked through it. Some sections have been rebuilt,
some have lost their coping, but most remains. One section has
C18 brick to the embattled granite coping and, in places, some
of the granite coping is more elaborate with mouldings
returned up and down the merlons and embrasures.
Built as the boundary wall to Mount Boone, the C18 home of the
Seale family. This was demolished and its grounds developed
with a row of Edwardian villas, Nos 1-16 (consec) Mount Boone.
