(Formerly listed as Wall to N of The Woodlands, Combe Abbey)
Boundary wall. c1770-78, with later alterations. By Lancelot (Capability) Brown. Red brick with coping in part. This wall extends north and north-west of The Woodlands (qv) to the edge of The Pool and is approx. 3m in height but has the occasional gap or area of collapse. The wall was originally built by Brown together with that to south (qv) of The Woodlands to cut off the area of land bordering The Pool which he had formed into a Menagerie. The area is named as such and the wall shown in a plan of 1778. Attached to the western side of this wall a range of single storey outbuildings. Red brick with plain tile roofs and a single ridge stack. Central range has to right 2 doorways with plank doors flanked by single 2-light glazing bar casements. Set back to right a remodelled C19 wing. Set back to left an original wing with 2 plank doors and two 2-light casements. These buildings were built to serve the Menagerie, to provide feed storage and winter quarters for the exotic animals kept here.
