Pair of gate piers, adjoining walls and attached piers. c1900
by Reginald Blomfield for Robert Gresley of Drakelow Hall.
Ashlar and coursed rubble. Pair of 15 feet high ashlar piers,
each with moulded bases and acanthus leaf cornices, surmounted
by large ball finials set on deep bases decorated with
sculptured garlands and flowers. The front face of each pier
has a carved coat of arms set in a Baroque cartouche, from which
hang swags of fruit and bows. Both piers have a pilaster strip
with scrolled top to inside face from which hang C20 iron gates.
Attached to either side there are curving stone walls with
rubble copings which ramp up to the piers and finish in
scrolled brackets. They are terminated at the other end by
similar smaller piers with moulded bases and cornices topped by
ball finials. Drakelow Hall was demolished in 1934, and
Drakelow Power Station now occupies most of the site.
