Description

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

CHANDLERS YARD 1.

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.
