5407 Brick walls facing path SU 1869-1969 1/350b to rear of Nos 136-138 High Street II 2.

Mostly c.1800, partly mid C19, some modern patching.

The walls are of brick with soldier course, mostly with a battered base and 'broached' wall buttresses The North-East face of the South-West wall is pitch- coated. The lower 45 yards of the South-West wall are about 7'5" high. The rest of the walls are about 6'3" high.

The oldest section appears to be the lower part of the North-East wall which could be later C18.

These two walls flank a footpath which connects High St to Back Lane. They are a good example of back yard development on burgage.strips and form a picturesque setting for a much frequented footpath.
