GV II

Forecourt walls, gates, gate piers and terrace retaining wall. Circa
1700. Grey sandstone ashlar. Walls form 3 sides of the entrance forecourt
to The Old Manor House (q.v.). Chamfered plinth and chamfered coping,
ramped up to one corner, and stepped and ramped up to terrace. Pair
of central square gate piers, each with moulded plinths, chamfered rustication,
moulded cornice and stepped cap to globe finial; flanking walls steeply
ramped up with carved scrolls and husk drops. Pair of wrought-iron
gates with dog rails, spearhead dog bars and railings, and curved braces.
Terrace retaining wall with rounded top; central flight of 9 stone steps
with curved walls (evidence of former railings in coping). The recesses
in the forecourt side walls suggest that the terrace retaining wall
was formerly higher than at present, or that it also had railings.
