Gateway screen at entrance to park. Circa 1830 with C20 additions. Rendered red brick with
freestone dressings. Screen wall of seven bays, the central one taller and with large 4-centred
carriage arch, the fourth bay has similar but smaller pedestrian gateway, both double-chamfered
and with cast-iron Gothic gates. Castellated Gothick style with battlements to end piers and the
taller central bay; buttresses between bays supporting block finials with quatrefoils, and
cruciform false loops on the carriage arch piers. Large buttresses to these piers on the inner sides
are C20, of concrete blocks over steel shores. Two lodges with coped parapets are attached to
either side and are ruinous; they might be later, but also of rendered brick; the southern one has
a four-panel door with studded planted chamfer to the panels. Source: Buildings of England,
