Remains of Abbey Precinct wall, now boundary to Abbey Court (not included). Late medieval, rough squared and coursed limestone and sandstone. A run of approx 100m wall from the S end of Abbey Barton (qv), returning for approx 30m to a pier at the Gloucester Road. From Abbey Barton a length of approx 6m rises to 3.5m, then steps down to approx 2m, variable, as the top of wall only partly coped, and much overgrown (July 1991). Where stone remains full height, heavy saddle-back copings sometimes in-situ. The return section is variable in height, stopped to a rectangular sandstone pier to stepped pyramidal capping. An important historical remnant from the Benedictine abbey, the wall reappears in part across the road in Abbey Cottages (qv).
