TQ 9175 SW REGENCY CLOSE Sheerness Dockyard 933/2/92 Wall extending approx 15.03.1977 85m enclosing garden to N of numbers 1-15

GV II

Garden wall. c1829-33, by George Ledwell Taylor, architect to the Navy Board, and John Rennie Snr, engineer. Yellow stock brick with ashlar coping. Encloses N side of former Officers' rear garden, with a doorway in the N side with a ball finial, and associated with the former dockyard perimeter wall (qv). HISTORY: Rennie's model of the yard shows each house with a separate garden, with a possible coach house at the S end. Unlike the other Royal dockyards, Sheerness was all rebuilt at the same time. Within the little-altered SE corner of Rennie's model layout, containing the entrance, chapel and officers' accommodation, and part of a unique planned early C19 dockyard.
