The wall was probably built in the mid C19 contemporary with E W Pugin's screen wall, and outlining the circulation to the SW corner of the castle originally laid out by William Emes in the 1760s.
The wall is approximately 800m long and 1.5m high, built of uncoursed rubble stonework with a triangular ashlar coping. At the top it adjoins the end of the screen wall to the stable yard, and, at the bottom of the steep driveway, the wall terminates in a square pier with three offsetting ashlar copings forming a pyramid.
Included as a significant element in the ensemble of buildings at Chirk Castle, and an essential part of the remodelling of the stable group in the Gothic idiom.
