WELLS

ST5445 MARKET PLACE
662-1/7/166 (South side)
Rear boundary wall to Town Hall

GV II

Boundary wall. c1907, possibly incorporating work of the main
1799 building campaign. Rubble. The wall rises to approx 4m,
and runs across the full width of the site on its S side,
including one set-back in plan of approx 2m, and returns along
the full length of the W side, linking to the rear of the
principal range of the Town Hall. The wall is important not
only for defining the site, but also as a major visual element
to the open paved area lying to the S side.
