Boundary wall north and west of Abbey Gate College

II

GV

Walls, probably medieval, with subsequent repairs and alterations, and
gateposts circa 1870. Red sandstone. The walls stand on sandstone
bedrock; the inner face (to the Grange garden) is between 2 and 4 feet
high, the outer face (including the exposed outcrop) up to 15 feet
high. The intention of light fortification appears probable. The
north wall is of irregular coursed rubble, slightly battered, with a
vertical projection towards the east end and a raised parapet. The
west wall is of squared snecked rubble; gateposts of sandstone at the
south end have pyramidal finials and bear, on shields, the Grosvenor
sheaf, left, and a talbot dog, right.
