6/63 Gates, gate piers and
flanking walls
approximately 80 metres
to south of Conyngham
Hall (q.v.)


Gates, gate piers and flanking walls. Late C18 or mid C19. Wrought-iron
gates, ashlar piers and walls. Double gates, approximately 2.5 metres high
at centre and ramped down to short railings fastened to piers, have spear-
headed dog-bars, elaborate C and S scrolls and monogram 'E C C' in centre of
each leaf. Gate piers: square in section, approximately 3 metres high, with
plinths, 3 projecting bands to each shaft, wreathed shield, cornice and ball
finial. Flanking walls: approximately 1.2 metres high, curving towards
house with plinth, shallow gabled coping, C-scrolls against gate piers, and
end piers with ball finials. The house (q.v.) was originally Coghill Hall;
the name was changed when it was bought by Ellen, Countess of Conyngham in
1796, who restored and enlarged it. The monogram on the gates is probably
hers, but the piers may date from a second major phase of rebuilding in
H Speight, Nidderdale, 1894, p 312.
