The following building shall be added:


249-/62/10046 Garden wall to south of
nos. 17-21

Garden wall, mid-C16, partially rebuilt mid-C18. Red brick, average size of brick: 232mm x
111mm x 56mm. English Bond. Length of wall approx. 20m running east-west. The first eleven
courses above the current ground level on the south side of the wall comprise undisturbed Tudor
brickwork. The upper 23 courses have been rebuilt, probably in the mid-eighteenth century,
largely re-using the original bricks, but with the addition of harder and darker red brick. This wall
currently forms a boundary between 17-21 Oakley Gardens and the garden of No 21 Cheyne
Walk. It was originally built as a garden wall north of Henry VIII's Manor House at Chelsea built
in the late 1530s, and represents one of the few fragments still visible above ground level.
