Garden wall. Mid C16 - mid C17 with later repairs and alterations. C16/C17

rebuilt in early/mid C19 brick to southern end, returns to east for approx.
15m and then approx. 20m to north, the latter section being the most complete
having retained its triangular brick coping. Built as garden wall to the
Manor House built for Henry VIII after 1536 and formed the eastern boundary of
Winchester House, built for James Duke of Hamilton in 1639-49. Included as a
significant remnant of one of the great houses fronting the Thames which
characterised this part of Chelsea.
