Listing Text

BICESTER PRIORY LANE
SP5822S (West side)
3/98 Garden walls of The Old Priory
20/03/70 and Bassett Lodge (not
included)
(Formerly listed as Walls of
rectangular grounds at The Old
Priory)
GV II

Garden walls, part of a walled garden. Possibly partly C15/early C16. Limestone
rubble, partly coursed, with some ashlar dressings and a plain-tile coping. Wall
is now approximately 2.5 metres high but may have been higher, and it extends
around the south, west, north and part of the east sides of a rectangular
enclosure approximately 80 metres by 45 metres, formerly the walled garden of
The Old Priory and now incorporating the gardens of Bassett Lodge and The Mill.
The south wall includes a blacked doorway. The wall is continuous with the front
wall The Mill (not included) and the rear wall of the stables (q.v.), and the
enclosure is completed by The Old Priory with its flanking walls (q.v.) which
may have been the hospice of Bicester Priory.
