2/181 Gateway and wall enclosing garden
on South front, Pyleigh Manor



Gateway and wall. Perhaps C17, possibly reset. Red sandstone ashlar with limestone dressings. Two gatepiers about 3
metres high, square with triangular caps, round headed niches below, linked by moulded cornice with central square
projection containing niche. Left hand pier has addition, about one metre high, with chamfered corners containing round
headed niche with flat top. Depressed arch oak doors set below large oak beam pegged to architraves. Partially obscured
by wistaria at time of survey (May 1983). Although the date is uncertain, this undoubtedly forms a visually significant
feature set into a red sandstone random rubble wall about 2 metres high with saddle back coping linked to the house
about 4 metres to the East, and encircling the garden on the South front.
