6/68 Gates, piers and curved
flanking walls approximately
200 metres south of Scale
Gates, gate piers and flanking walls. Early C18, moved to present position
c1860. Ashlar; wrought-iron gates. Piers approximately 2 metres high,
recessed panels to each face, cornice and ball finial. Walls approximately
1 metre high, overall length approximately 15 metres, with ridged coping.
Gates: 2 leaves, bars and dog bars with scroll motifs. The gateway
originally stood approximately 20 metres in front of the south side of the
house. In 1853 the toll road was constructed and the Skipton-Cracoe road
no longer ran to the east of the house, but much closer, to the west. The
new entrance as probably established at this time, or shortly after when
the house was being extensively altered. The right-hand flanking wall was
restored in 1985 after vehicular damage.
