Listing Text

Gatepiers and gates. 1875. Designed by Benjamin Burleigh - architect to the North Eastern Railway Co. Painted and rendered brick and stone. Two tall octagonal gatepiers with chamfered bases and moulded pyramidal tops. Each pier has a battered and curved curbing stone on the front corner. These piers retain their hinges though the iron gates have been removed. Two outer piers define pedestrian entrances on either side. Shorter than the main piers, they are also octagonal with chamfered bases and pyramidal caps. The surviving iron gates have major and minor spears. These gates originally formed the main entrance to the York Goods Station.
