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. A conservation management plan for the medieval defences has also been completed. Sections of the wall have been repaired with Historic England grant aid. The section which remains at risk is affected by damaging plant growth, it extends 40 metres from the back of number 27 New Street to Windsor Row. The owner has removed most of the vegetation and a solution for the area is under negotiation.
