Abbot Chyryton wall, Boat Lane, Evesham - Wychavon

Part of the outer precinct wall of Evesham Abbey, built by Abbot William de Chyryton between 1317 and 1344, which originally extended from the river to the Abbey. Previous consolidation has partially failed due to vandalism. Some parts of wall are still in very bad condition, and wall footings are diminishing. Discussions are ongoing with associated parties to agree a long term solution.
