have moulded plinth and entablature with ball and urn finials: urns of central
piers are filled with finely-carved flowers. Fine wrought-iron double gates have
scrolled undulate band and crested overthrow arch: similar pedestrian gates to
sides. Flanking screens divided into 2 bays each by ironwork piers. The
Tudor-style lodge attached to left was built in 1865, when the gates were moved
to their present position: of limestone rubble with ashlar dressings, stone
slate roof, chamfered doorway and mullioned windows.
