Canal enclosure walls to north, Bridge Street, Lower Weedon, Weedon Bec - West Northamptonshire (UA)

Early C19 structure part of an extraordinary military complex built during the Napoleonic era. Brickwork is falling away, there are missing copings and damaging vegetation growth, the whole site was underused for many years and was left in poor condition. It was sold in early 2013 and is now home to various businesses. The owner is considering further development. A condition survey of non-beneficial elements was carried out with Historic England grant aid c. 2015. Bastion repairs were identified as a priority and the north east bastion is to be repaired with further grant aid in 2021.
