Description

An application was made to convert the former office and to address the state of the wall within any future development plans. The HAA provides a written and photographic state of the wall. The site was inspected on 25 July 2014. An assessment was made of the flint and rubble wall that forms part of the the boundary to the Crankles Corner offices. The office stand on the site of the former St Margaret's chapel, it lies within the precinct of the medieval abbey of St Edmunds and part of a designated scheduled monument. The wall as an expression of the current boundary dates probably to the latter part of the 18th century but has made use of a pre-existing wall, part of an earlier structure that dates from the 16th century (S1).
