TL 81 NW, NE, SE GREAT BRAXTED BRAXTED PARK ROAD BRAXTED PARK

1/59, 2/59 & 4/59 Wall enclosing Braxted Park

GV II

Park wall. Circa 1825-1831. For Peter Du Cane . Red brick with moulded coping, mainly stepped. Of varying height approx. 3-4 metres in Flemish bond. The wall has a circumference of approx. 4 1/2 miles. It adjoins Braxted Park Road to the south and Kelvedon Road to the west, Pundicts Lodge track to east and returns from thence to Kelvedon Road. Building commenced 1825 at Kelvedon Lodge, the NW angle. The anti-clockwise building phases are commemorated with stone plaques set in the wall inscribed e.g.P. D.-1825. In addition to Kelvedon Lodge and entrance gates q.v. 2/72, 73 Witham Lodge q.v. 1/60 is situated at the SW angle, Nos. 1 & 2 entrance lodges with Nos. 3 and 4 on opposite side of Braxted Park Road q.v. 4/61,2,3 & 4. The entrance gates to Great Braxted Church are of wrought iron with side panels supported by square brick pillars with plain stone capping, wall plaque dated 1827 but the gates and pillars appear to be of a later date. Entrance gateway at southeast angle has tall square red brick pillars, moulded stone capping surmounted by lidded urn finials dated 1828 and 1830. The new entrance to Pundicts Lodge with large ball finials to brick pillars and tall arrow head rails and gates. A rare survival in Essex and of good quality, the wall exemplifies the prestige of the Du Cane family at Braxted Park during the 19th century. Peter Du Cane removed the houses from near Great Braxted Church to Bung Row q.v. 4/88-92 thus enclosing only the Church in this area of the Park.
