TEWKESBURY

SO8932 ABBEY PRECINCTS
859-1/6/350 Boundary wall, south of Church of St
Mary

GV II

Length of boundary wall. Undated, incorporates medieval
fragments. Coursed limestone and lias. A length of boundary
wall, from approx 1.5m to approx 2.5m high, with rough
stone-on-edge copings, but in parts overgrown (November 1991);
approx 75m total length. It lies parallel to and approx 10m S
of the S wall of the Abbey south aisle. The wall returns at
the SW corner of the Abbey, where it is stopped to the archway
with gate linked to Abbey House (qv), and at its E end it
curves away towards the south near the SW corner of the
transept. It is stopped to the S boundary fence to the Abbey.
The wall probably does not follow a significant historical
line, as the former monastic buildings would have occupied
this area, but it does have various fragments built in which
were part of the medieval fabric, and ought therefore to be
retained.
