E. Rose (NLA), 22 October 1997.
A long wall curved to follow line of road, except for the west end which is at right angles to the road. At the east end the base is probably 18th century, heightened to about 10 ft in the 19th century. The west end appears to be all 19th century and rises to about 20 ft, except for the extreme west end, which is probably 18th century and earlier, where it follows a line at right angles away from the road immediately east of The Bull Inn in Common Place.
