SO 59 NW
7/26 Kitchen garden wall
and attached ruined
outbuilding at north
end approx. 15m south-
east of Preen Manor

Kitchen garden wall. Circa 1870 by Richard Norman Shaw. Coursed lime-
stone rubble and red brick, machine tile gabled capping. Approximately
130m in length with 14 gabled brick buttresses, west side is brick-
faced; pointed double-chamfered gateway to centre with original heavy
panelled double doors; the north end is stepped up to meet the attached
and earlier rectangular outbuilding: uncoursed limestone rubble, now
roofless with buttresses on each of long sides; 3 segmental-headed
brick openings at ground level (possibly inserted by Shaw) also on long
sides. The outbuilding now encloses a sunken garden, but the stonework
suggests it may originally have been associated with Preen Priory (q.v.
under Church of St John the Baptist). Preen Manor, built in c.1870-1
by Norman Shaw for Arthur Sparrow, but subsequently largely demolished
and re-built, is not included. Andrew Saint, Richard Norman Shaw (1976),
