to The Old Manor House (q.v.). Chamfered plinth and chamfered coping,

of central square gate piers, each with moulded plinths, chamfered rustication,

ramped up with carved scrolls and husk drops. Pair of wrought-iron
gates with dog rails, spearhead dog bars and railings, and curved braces.

was formerly higher than at present, or that it also had railings.
