Listing Text

SJ 74 SW MAER C.P. ASTON LANE
(off north-east side)

4/91 Gate piers about'ls0m
south-west of Lea Head
17/11/66 Manor (formerly listed
as Gate piers at Lea
Head)

II

Gate piers. Probably late C17/early C18. Rusticated sandstone ashlar.
Square in section. Moulded capping (and probably plinth under gravel of
drive) with half domes above, surmounted by pineapple finials. 2 late C19/
early C20 wrought iron gates, not included. The gate piers are not in
their original position and formerly stood in front of the house; the
domes and finials have been repaired with cement and the right-hand pier
is twisted round and slightly damaged at time of re-survey (1984).
Comparable in style to the gate piers at Whitmore Hall, Whitmore C.P. (q.v.).
If these are indeed late C17, as claimed, they are early examples of the
representation of pineapples, first grown in this country in the 1660's.
