Extends approximately 500 metres SE from Nos 1 and 2 Main Gate to the N of the former Dockyard Church (qqv), from where a section ramps down to extend to meet the retaining wall in front of the Church. The main wall runs E of the Dockyard House garden (qv), where it contains a segmental- arched doorway leading from Church Road for officers going to church.

This section of wall facing High Street has square lamps on cast-iron brackets attached at intervals. HISTORY: built by Rennie to enclose his complete rebuilding of the Sheerness yard in the 18205.
