BRINKBURN BRINKBURN PRIORY
NZ 19 NW
10/73 Riverside wall
north of Manor
House, with
attached gatepiers
GV II

Riverside wall and gatepiers. Medieval, remodelled and partly rebuilt in
early C19. Squared stone with cut dressings. Wall c.150 metres long, 5
metres high to river but only 1 metre internally. Gabled C19 coping with
occasional crenellations. Seen from across the river, a long stretch of
wall to the left has medieval masonry, including a corbelled-out projection
close to the attached gateway, extending to a little below the coping.
Central part, with steps down to water, entirely rebuilt. Right end part
with chamfered set-back at mid-height is probably medieval, and joins north-
west corner of walled yard of Manor House (q.v.). Internal face shows
attached gateway towards north end; the gatepiers have C15 or early C16
mouldings and later swept dips (ball finials missing) and may be an in-situ
remnant of a priory gatehouse.

Later attached wall to east of gatepiers is not of special interest.
