Listing Text


9/147 The Railings, gate and gate piers
about 9 metres south of



Railings, gate and gate piers. Probably C18. Wrought iron, on stone plinths now almost buried. Plain waisted and
collared spikes, with leaf curls to bases to exclude small animals; thick braced standards with urn finials: gate piers
have scroll open- work to all four facets, with repousse work tops; ornate gate to match. A rare survival of such
quality C18 ironwork in a small town location (in poor condition at time of survey, June 1984).
