Terrace to SE of
Risley Hall
GV II*

Balustrade and gateway. Early C17 with minor later repairs.
Long balustrade with thick, shaped splat balusters, and plain
piers with ovolo moulded edges and half balusters to either
side. The copings are chamfered with an ovolo moulded lower
edge. Each pier has a pedestal over with a chamfered base and
top which carries a finial of sorts, some steeple finials, one
fruit bowl finial and various moulded finials. To the western
end is a stepped bridge over the stream which supports a
gateway. This gateway has a central moulded four-centred arched
doorcase with early C20 iron gate, flanked by semi-circular
headed niches with roll moulded arches, with shield keystones
and moulded capitals. Above is a continuous dripmould, stepped
up over the door, and above again is a crowstepped gable with
elaborately moulded copings and steeple finials to centre and
either edge. The north front of the gate is similar with high
crowstepped walls to either side and a flight of steps between.
