5/35 Gothic folly at north end
of gardens, Ribston Hall


Mock ruin or Gothic folly. Mid C19, possibly using medieval materials.
Coursed, squared gritstone. Double-chamfered Gothic arch with hood-mould
and head-stops, flanked by gabled buttresses. The archway may have been
built using stone removed from Hunsingore old church when it was demolished
by Mr. Joseph Dent in 1867. It is similar in style to the archway in the
garden wall (q.v.) which leads into the Pinetum, laid out after 1857 by
Joseph Dent. The buttresses are very similar in character to those on the
south side of the chapel of St. Andrew (q.v.) which appear to be C19. There
are many pieces of carved stone, including 2 stone fonts, on the ground on
the east side of the structure.
