Probably late C16. The wing of Vaynol Old Hall was built in c1590, and the porch added to the Chapel in 1596. It is probable that this wall is either contemporary or built shortly afterwards to enclose the forecourt.
Rubble stonework, with freestone voussoirs to the arch. The wall is approximately 11m long, and 3.3m high, with a wide 3-centred arch over the pathway in front of the Hall. It adjoins the W wing of the Old Hall, and the corner of the S porch of the Chapel of St Mary. The copings appear to be missing.
Included as a vital element in the setting of the Grade I Old Hall, and the Grade I chapel, and of group value with other surrounding buildings and listed features.
