(East Side)
Boundary Walls to
Beddington Place along
east side of Churchyard
and along Church Lane
TQ 2965 SE 13/42
The emparking of Carew Manor lands took place in C16 and again in early C17,
the latter in the time of Sir Francis Carew. It is possible that at least the
wall along Church Lane dates from one of these periods. Wall along Church Lane
extends east for several hundred yards from the corner with the boundary wall
to the east of the Churchyard. Wall of red brick with battered coping, roll
moulding, dentil course and plinth; very high and rounded at western corner but
descends in height towards east. Gateway with Gothic arch, plain parapet and
buttresses. To east of gateway, wall is supported by buttresses [14]; coping
has been broken down in places and the brickwork is in need of repair. Boundary
wall with east side of churchyard probably also at least of C17 date; north and
south parts of its length of brick with battered coping; towards middle a much
lower build with tile course and plain capping, apparently of later date. 3
brick pilasters with stone capping.

Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Lychgates, Churchyard Walls and wall along
Church Lane, Orangery Wall, Beddington Place, gate and screen, Pigeon House,
Nos l to 3 (consec) Beddington Park Cottages, premises occuppied by Hockey Club
and adjoining structure, East Lodge, wall south-west of Beddinqton Park Cottages
and garden walls to north of Orangery and Beddington Place form a group.
