EYNSFORD High Street
1. (To NW of)

Walls on NE and SW sides
of NW garden at Little
Mote (qv)
TQ 5465 12/57A
II
2. Two walls. Not later than mid C18; possibly medieval. Coursed flint with
brick and flint coping.

N E wall about eight feet high and twenty inches deep at base; coping partly
removed but incorporates a Roman tile. Wall returns S W for a short distance
at river end with footings beyond; three are brick quoins here with the flint
quoin near the base.

S.W. wall possibly a little less high; similar flint masonry. In two sections.
Short N W section extends to river where there are brick quoins. Main section
of S W wall retains more of its coping which comprises four courses of brickwork,
one with brick cogging; flints along the top. The wall is slightly thicker at
its S E end and terminates at a point parallel with the external chimney breast
of the house in its S W elevation. It is thought that the walls are in themselves
medieval or are on the boundary lines of a garth on N W of the house. See Archaeologia
Cantiana, 1971. P.119.
