History

Garden walls to S and E sides of gardens st Llantarnam Abbey, similar to the low walls of the forecourt and presumably of c 1834-6 when the house was remodelled for R.J. Blewitt by T.H. Wyatt. Walls front a dry ditch and gates open onto shallow bridges into surrounding pasture. The SW and SE corners are treated as polygonal bastions with matching low walls.

Exterior

The gateways are flanked by pierced stone square panel each side. One gate on N, one on long E side and one on S side, which returns to link with forecourt walls (listed separately). SE and SW angled bastions with pierced square panels. Bastions each have centre statue (listed separately).
