7/71 Gates of Fulbeck Hall
Gates to Fulbeck Hall. 1733. Coursed limestone rubble, ashlar and wrought
iron. Gate of 2 leaves with ramped side screens and elaborate overthrow.
Side screens rest on dwarf walls with plain copings. The piers are square
in plan with repousse capitals. The overthrow has much scrollwork
enriched with grotesques and oak leaf sprays supporting the bull's head
crest and arms of Sir Francis Fane and his wife Elizabeth. The design is
clearly influenced by the Frenchman Tijou, and could be the work of
either John Warren of Cambridge (c/f Belton gates) or else of Edward Nutt,
who made similar gates at Grimsthorpe Castle in 1730.
