8/l10 Gates and gate piers in
west garden wall
approximately 25 metres
south of west pavilion


Gates and gate piers. Probably 1817-18 for Sir William Amcotts Ingilby but
possibly reusing late C18 ironwork. Ashlar piers, wrought-iron gates and
overthrow. Piers: approximately 5 metres high with plinth and cornice band;
ball and cushion finials. Gates of 2 leaves; plain bars; short dog bars
with arrow-head finials; scrolled lock rail. Overthrow: delicate C and S
scrolls with central Ingilby star in a roundel. The gate piers are not at
right angles to the wall line but are aligned towards the south-west, the
line of the footpath approach from the castle. The C19 gardens are on the
site of the earlier gardens and the gateway was probably reused. See North
Yorkshire Historic Gardens Register - Ripley Castle, Grade II.
