2/61 Gates and gate piers on
west side of road
17.5.60 opposite main gateway
(formerly included in
lodges, ironwork screen
and gateway opposite, at
Gates and gate piers. Probably early C18. For 4th Viscount Fauconberg. Ashlar
sandstone piers, wrought-iron gates. The piers are pilasters attached to the
front of a brick field wall, and are of 5 pulvinated bands with square base.
Plain capitals, with bow-shaped capstones, which may have been renewed. Paired
gates have square bars and intermediate lower bars with inverted-V finials. On
the top of the gates are scrollwork volutes with leaves. The closing bar has an
acorn finial. This gateway continues the line of the main drive from Newburgh
Priory, through the main gateway with lodges. Beyond this gateway is a fine
avenue of mature trees. The gateway is set in a brick wall which returns to the
right behind Home Farm and has strange circular openings: although not of list-
able quality, the walls are an integral part of the composition.
