gates to Cross Hill House

Garden walls, gatepiers and gates. Probably mid C18 with C19 gates. Coursed
squared marlstone, rubble, and brick with limestone-ashlar gatepiers and
wrought-iron gates. A rubble wall approximately 3 metres high extends from the
western end of the coach-house range (q.v.) to Cross Hill Road, then returns
eastwards for approximately 110 metres along the road in squared marlstone
approximately 2 metres to 2.5 metres high; the eastern boundary wall is in
rubble, approximately 55 metres long, but 2 sections of wall linking back to
Cross Hill House (q.v.) are in brick. The 2 carriage entrances both have double
iron gates: one has plain ashlar piers with moulded bases and caps; the eastern
gateway has rusticated piers with moulded caps and pineapple finials.
