City walls: section extending 130 feet (40 metres) from the back of No. 27 New Street to Windsor Row - Worcester

Single section of the medieval city walls. A variety of repair and maintenance has taken place along the city walls in the past, and some sections of the wall have been repaired with Historic England grant aid. This section remains at risk and is affected by damaging plant growth. The owner of part of this stretch undertook beneficial works to remove a lot of this in 2019; although areas outside of their control still needs to be addressed, and more permanent barriers installed. Maintenance works are also is now needed to tackle re-emerging vegetation
