Details

SJ 46 SW SAIGHTON C.P. CHAPEL LANE (East side) 3/173 Boundary wall north and west of Abbey Gate College 1/6/1967

GV II

Walls, probably medieval, with subsequent repairs and alterations, and gateposts circa 1870. Red sandstone. The walls stand on sandstone bedrock; the inner face (to the Grange garden) is between 2 and 4 feet high, the outer face (including the exposed outcrop) up to 15 feet high. The intention of light fortification appears probable. The north wall is of irregular coursed rubble, slightly battered, with a vertical projection towards the east end and a raised parapet. The west wall is of squared snecked rubble; gateposts of sandstone at the south end have pyramidal finials and bear, on shields, the Grosvenor sheaf, left, and a talbot dog, right.
