Listing Text

TQ 55 SW
1/165 Gate piers, gate and flanking
- walls at the entrance to the
drive to Nizels House

Gate piers, gate and flanking walls. Early C20. Brick walls, brick and stone
piers, timber gate.

Adjacent to the Lodge, Nizels, and probably contemporary with the remodelling
of Nizels House (q.v.) and the layout of the Edwardian garden.

Square section gate piers with plinths and moulded stone cornices, crowned
with ball finials. The stout timber gate with diagonal cross-bracing is hung
from a chamfered timber post with a ramshorn moulding below the finial. Short
sections of curved brick wall extend from the gate piers to shorter piers at
either end.

Although fairly plain in design the gateway is probably part of the Edwardian
programme of work at Nizels House.

Group value with the Lodge, Nizels.
