Enclosure feature walling and gates. C19. Probably by Sir James Pennethorne. Ham stone ashlar, wrot-iron gates. Walls
enclose an area of some 36 metres x 36 metres, in 11 bays each side, with gateways to each centre bay. Walls have
plinths and angle copings, with eight 4-centre-arched openings to each bay and plain piers between, in all about one
metre high; the gate piers higher, square plan with moulded flat caps; gates in wrot-iron with quatrefoil perforated
sheet ornament to bottom and middle rails, and with arched bracing to top rail which has a shaped sheet fret over: the
