The stone rubble garden walls to the west of the abbey possibly date from the medieval monastic settlement.

Garden retaining wall running west-south-west to east-north-east approximately 35 metres north-west of Buckland Abbey was Listed on 26th January 1987. The garden retaining wall, originally formed part of the Abbey curtilage. Probably Medieval although the crenellation may date from a later period. Stone rubble. Irregular plan, probably truncated at either end; from the evidence of several arches and the original likely layout of the abbey buildings it seems probable that this wall formed the curtilage wall to the abbey church adjoining buildings. The stone arches are irregularly placed, of varying sizes and appear to be original. The leanto rubble buttresses are 20th century. Other details: LBS Number 92641.
