BARNARD CASTLE

NZ0516SW NEWGATE 770-1/6/172 (South side) 14/10/91 Walls to The Vicarage and Glebe Cottage

GV II

Walls enclosing garden of Vicarage (qv) and running along Newgate on the north, Parson's Lonnen on the east, the Demesne on the south, and the length of the garden on the west. Probably early C19 with c1852 kitchen garden wall and gate piers. Rubble with ashlar piers; quoins to door at south west. Square piers at entrance to vicarage have pyramidal ashlar coping. From these, the wall running along Newgate is approx 1.5m high with rounded, roughly dressed coping stones; similar coping on wall along Parson's Lonnen which is approx 2m high and is interrupted by an inserted entrance in southern half. West wall is high with brick lining to the kitchen garden at the north end. South wall has ramped raised section over blocked doorway with quoins at south west corner of garden. This wall continues at height of approx 1.5m until the corner to the Lonnen is turned, when it is ramped up to the higher wall. The whole garden wall plays an important part in the landscape and the townscape. On the south it is on high ground at the top of the Demesne beside the River Tees and to east of the rear of The Bank. On the north it forms the south edge of the street and with the listed walls to Spring Lodge (qv), Birch Road (qv) and the Bowes Musem (qv) maintains the historic character of this approach to the town. Linking the two, Parson's Lonnen is flanked by this wall and the walls of Spring Lodge.
