SO85SW COLLEGE GREEN 620-1/3/172 (South side) 05/04/71 Remains of ancient sandstone wall abutting No.6 on west

GV II

Remains of wall, probably part of monastic building rather than a defensive structure. Considered to be C13 with several later phases of stone replacement and repairs in brickwork including C20 concrete lintels to low-level openings and plain clay weather capping. Mainly constructed of red sandstone. PLAN: Straight section of wall running approx. north to south. Present exposed elevation (west) was originally the internal face of the wall. Masonry is rough-dressed with a punch finish and laid to courses. Approx. 9m. long by 4,5m. high by 0.8m. thick. Four former window openings at first-floor level, 2 at ground level aligned with the pair above. Information ref. date and probable origins courtesy of Mr. Chris Guy, archaeologist to Worcester Cathedral.
