Courtyard gateway from Wallington Hall, 1735, re-erected as eyecatcher 1751.
Squared stone with ashlar dressings. 3 bays. slightly-projecting pedimented
centre bay has semicircular arch; flanking bays and l-bay returns have similar
smaller arches. Piers with square bases, bulgy rustication and impost blocks.
Sunk panels above flanking arches hold double-headed busts from Aldersgate,
London. Central bay has heavy pyramidal finials with dog-tooth ornament,
