History

C18 or earlier. A formal enclosure as an entrance to a country house is characteristic of the early C17 and part of the walling may date from that period. This wall, however, may have been rebuilt or lowered at the time of the re-modelling of the Stable Court in the 1860s.

Exterior

Retaining wall of limestone rubble with coping, about 2m in height. It forms only a dwarf wall on the garden side giving an open aspect into the Stable Court.

Reasons for Listing

Included as one of the structures associated with the gardens and estate of St. Fagans Castle.
