Entrance gate piers to
Gate piers. Mid-late C17. For the Smithson family. Ashlar sandstone.
Square piers with banded rustication. Capitals have torus architraves,
scotia friezes and classical cornices. Ball finials rest on shafts
supported by 4 ogee volutes. The gate piers are shown in front of the house
in the early C18 drawing of Moulton Manor in Samuel Buck's Yorkshire
Sketchbook (1979), p352, and have therefore been moved to their present
position to the north-east of the house.
