Southern Boundary Wall to Royal Claren
Southern boundary wall to Victualling Yard. Dated 1829, part of the developments under G L Taylor (Evans, p42). Red brick in English bond.
A run of straight wall of approx. 155m length, lying E/W and set approx. 5.2m to the S of and parallel with the outer wall of the S range of cooperage (qv). Wall rises approx. 2.7m, in 1 1/2 brick thickness, increased to 2 brick thickness in a series of broad buttresses on the N side; a brick-on-edge coping crowns the wall, with two courses of a single brick thickness, then a projecting string course capped by a canted tile course.
The wall was provided to enclose a new roadway, beyond the cooperage, for access by cattle being brought to the yard to the new slaughterhouse built at this same date.
