Description

This information is taken from the statutory List as it was in 2001 and may not be up to date.

BARHAM CHURCH LANE TM 15 SW 3/9 Garden wall and gateway, parallel and adjacent to 3.10.77 Church Lane and 20 north of Barham Hall (formerly listed as remains of Barham Hall wall and Gateway) - II An early or mid C16 blocked pedestrian gateway and flanking wall, probably the entrance and part of the enclosing wall of the base court of Barham Hall (this house is now demolished ana the present Hall stands on a new site). About 80 metres long and 2.5m high on average. Mainly of narrow red bricks in irregular English bond. One section is partly of narrow gault bricks. 9 metres from the east end is a blocked C16 pedestrian gateway of brick with limestone dressings; the jambs are splayed and the head is elliptical and hood-moulded. The parapet above is altered, but is crowstepped and has a blocked niche over the doorway. To right and left of the south (inner) face of the archway are blocked original openings, suggesting that the gateway was part of a porch or small gatehouse. The wall was much remodelled, especially at the right hand end, in C18; and recapped with splayed brickwork on dentilled tabling in C19. A stone coat of arms, formerly built into the wall above the gateway, has now been removed. N.B.R.
