Wall and Gatepiers running
south from the middle
of south front of Nos
20 and 21 to join the
north side of No 22A
ST 8261 1/195


The wall (approximately 6ft high) projects from between Nos 20 and 21
to a gatepier. A second similar gatepier stands opposite to the south.
Both are of ashlar, having moulded entablatures with low pyramidal tops
and plain bases. Between the piers are double wrought-iron gates incorporating
a spear motif. This wall continues south and curves forward increasing
in height to approximately 10ft. Coursed rubble with ashlar quoins and
plain coping. The wall continues down Coppice Hill and forms an essential
ingredient to the street. It finally rises to 15 to 18ft towards its
south end. Directly opposite Nos 10, 11 and 12, set in the higher part
of the wall is a large elliptical carriage-arch with keystone (blocked).
The wall is abutted at its south end by No 22A.

Nos 9 to 12 (consec), Nos 14 to 16 (consec), Nos 19 to 23 (consec), Wesleyan
Methodist Church, Former Wesleyan Methodist Church and wall and gates
form a group.
