TQ 1858-1958 (east side)
Gate piers and gates
beside North Lodge


Pair of gate piers with double gates, pedestrian gate and screen, at entrance to
north drive to Ashtead Park House. Dated 1882 on gates; recently restored.
Portland stone and wrought-iron. The piers are approx. ½-metre square in section
and approx. 4 metres high, with 3 raised vermiculated bands, cornice, cubic
upper stage with panelled sides, moulded cornice and ball finial on swept
pedestal. The very large double gates are hung on square wrought-iron standards
filled with scrollwork and finished with urn finials; each gate has spear-headed
dog-bars, a low band of spindles, a central panel of scrollwork, an upper band of
spindles with figures "18" and "82" attached to the left and right gates
respectively, and elaborate scrolled cresting rising to a central ramp. To the
right is a pedestrian gate in similar but simpler style, and to the left a screen
which matches this. The item is similar in style to the set of gate piers on Park
Lane (q.v.).
