Gateway and attached walls. Mid/late C16, altered c.1830. Walls of mid/late
C16 red brick with C16 moulded stone string course and head corbels adjoining
gateway; ends of each wall have mid C19 brickwork, probably representing the
truncation of the more extensive C16 walling. Gateway, of stone ashlar and
stuccoed c.1830, has offset diagonal buttresses with gabled tops to front and
chamfered to rear; parapet with moulded string course. Tudor-arched doorway
has label mould with carved stops and blank shields in spandrels to rear, and
hood mould with head stops over mould arch to front which is flanked by
port cullis to right and carved flower to left. History: the walls and
gateway were formerly part of the gardens of Cassiobury Park, a large house
built from 1554 for the Earls of Essex and which was demolished in 1927.
