Probably mostly C18 and C19 but some of it is on the line of C16 walls, parts of which may be included in the present structure.


This wall is in two sections divided by the main east gate. It stretches from near the north gate to the East Lodge and from the east gate to the corner on the Llantwit Major road where it turns south on the perimeter of the eastern deer-park. Built of roughly coursed local lias limestone about 2.25m in height, some parts with a Victorian cock-and-hen coping. Some evidence of rebuilding and repair.
