Churchyard walls to the Church of St
John the Baptist


Churchyard wall. Partly C19, partly earlier. Local red breccia
rubble. The wall varies in height. It is taller on the east
side. The south side has toothed capping and includes coped
gabled piers to the S gateway to the churchyard. Alongside
Church Path on the south side it is probably C19 and low with
grey limestone coping. It rises in height in Palace Place,
where it stands opposite the wall of the medieval Bishop's
Palace (qv), and extends along Church Street. Parts of the
wall may be medieval.
