(south side)
10/59 Gateway (known as
Inigo Jones gateway)
90 metres south east
of Denton Manor,
in Denton Park
G.V. I
Gateway and piers. Mid C17, probably by John Webb, with minor C19
alterations. Ashlar. Semi-circular headed central arch with
impost blocks and rusticated raised keystone, flanked by
rusticated Tuscan pillars supporting a plain entablature with
broken segmental pediment with ball finial at centre. The base
of the frieze over the arch returns as bifurcated ribbons to
either side of the keystone. To either side are engaged square
gate piers with rusticated panels, side scrolls and ball finials.
A short length of C19 railing links the similar outer piers. All
rusticated surfaces are vermiculated. The demolished Welby
Almshouses which were dated 1653 had a similar detail to the
bifurcated ribbon
