Probably a C16 wall and later than the curtain wall walk of Tretower Court which it abutts. Formerly a stable had been built late C15 immediately behind where the wall stands. The wall was probably built when the stable, not shown on a 1538 survey, was demolished, possibly using reclaimed materials
Rubble-stone boundary wall approximately 2.5m high and 12m long. Near N end is a doorway with 2-centred arch and continuous chamfer, with renewed boarded door. Above doorway is a continuous ledge where the wall steps in. Modern wall attached at S end.
An integral part of the setting of Tretower Court and retaining a fine C16 doorway.
