Deanery wall, Lower Gungate, Tamworth - Tamworth

A C14 masonry wall which was part of St Editha's Deanery. An Historic England engineer has inspected the three surviving sections of wall, parts of which are in urgent need of maintenance and repair. The removal of plant growth, repointing and resetting of stones to wall tops are all required. As a boundary wall, the ownership is uncertain, and liability for repair unclear.
