Yew Court grounds,
10 metres to west of
Pair of gate piers. c1742. Dressed sandstone. Circular on plan,
approximately 2 metres in diameter. Half-glazed doors to garden side,
with decorative iron glazing bars. Heavy stone lintels. 2 small oval
openings, originally unglazed, to street side of each pier. Projecting
moulded cornice below the domed tops which were apparently rebuilt in
C19. There is a corresponding projecting stone band inside each pier,
at the base of the concave roof. The piers were probably erected in

thought to be of ecclesiastical origins. They were depicted-in
2 paintings by John Atkinson Grimshaw in 1877, now held in the Leeds
City Art Gallery.
