SP 02 28 WINCHCOMBE ABBEY TERRACE
Boundary wall with
gates and piers, to
- Winchcombe Abbey
Boundary wall, piers, gates. 1835. Cut and squared coursed limestone on
plinth, with plain chamfered weathering and weathered coping, c.2.25 m high
overall but swept up at left-hand end at junction with gate piers to
St Peter's Church (q.v.); extends right to include gate in arched opening
and as far as wall is coped, opposite north-west corner of Lloyd's Bank (not
included). Near left-hand end pair of square piers c.2.75 m high in lime-
stone ashlar with ogee-mould domed cappings with similar frieze and square
mouldings containing pair of wrot iron gates with segmental-shaped top,
spear-head verticals and intermediates and decorative hanging-rails. Near
right-hand end wrot iron gate with quatrefoil panels in 4-centred arch and
chamfered responds under flat coping swept up at this section of wall. This
wall represents an important aspect of the tidying-up to Abbey Terrace at
the time of establishing the Winchcombe Road Trustees; the road formerly
was only just over 10 ft (3 m) wide here. The wall, backed by trees, is
a significant townscape element in the heart of the town.
