5/44 Gates, piers and flanking
walls at Lindrick Gate
Gates, piers and flanking walls. Probably before 1729 by John Simpson,
mason, for John Aislabie. Wrought-iron gates, ashlar piers, coursed rubble
walling. Gates: inner carriage gates with bars and dogbars and scrolling to
top rail. Outer pedestrian gates similar but without scrolls. 10
rusticated piers approximately 3 metres high; the 2 inner pairs with banded
ball and cushion finial, the outer 3 pairs with shallow pyramidal caps.
Infill walling is of poor quality and probably replaces iron railings or
wooden palings similar to those at Studley Roger (qv), thus emphasising the
dramatic Lindrick drive and view from Studley Hall (demol) northwards to the
Hackfall estate at Grewelthorpe.
