History

Boundary wall across back of Monk Haven beach, the date and purpose unknown, but said to be associated with the Trewarren estate, and therefore post 1845. The stonework seems to match that on the folly tower E of the bay.

Exterior

Tall boundary wall, divided into two. Red rubble sandstone, with rubble battlements, the outer third of each wall stepped up and also battlemented. The wall may have originally been continuous with a door in the centre, but now a full-height opening.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a picturesque screen wall, a significant feature of Monk Haven and part of the Trewarren estate.
