Forecourt walls and gate piers. Circa 1870, by William Eden Nesfield.

with double-chamfered plinth and chamfered coping. Former wrought-
iron railings now removed but standards and stanchions with ornamental
spandrels survive. Brick piers with chamfered plinths, moulded-brick
ribs forming grid to sides, and pyramidal stone caps with trumpet finials.
