Inner faces have steps up to platform. To east of main gate original 3 metre high wall with rounded ashlar coping stretches approximately 20 metres east. To west original wall stretches to corner of Dicken's Street, half way along a small gateway with shouldered arch and steel bared gate. Wall curves slightly and follows the rise of the land.
