  • WALL (19th Century - 1800 AD to 1899 AD)

Description

Structure 10 comprised two courses of red bricks (230mm x 70mm), bonded with a pale grey, lime mortar (Fig. 3). It measured 0.57m wide and 0.16m high. Due to the narrow width of the trench it was not possible to determine precisely the orientation of the wall beyond a broad north-south alignment.The two walls are inevitably part of larger linear structures, but as they differ in their construction they are unlikely to be part of the same building. Therefore, it is most likely that they were foundations of boundary walls rather than enclosed structures. Although it is still possible that differential preservation could have removed any elements of contemporary walls. Both walls date to the 19th century, based on the type of bricks used in their construction.West Wycombe Park was subject to a vernacular buildings survey in 1992, which included Park Farm. Though it is not definite, plans within the report suggest that wall 10 relates to outbuildings associated with the farm (B2).
