GV II*

Gateway. Probably 1630's. For Sir Edward Peyto and copy of a design
by Inigo Jones. English bond red brick with moulded, cut and rubbed
brick. Classical style. Round arch with keyblock, pilasters,
entablature and pediment. Pilasters, wall, and arch have intermittent
rustication. It is likely that this gateway was built at about the
same time as Chesterton Windmill (q.v.). It is a close copy, at about
three-quarters scale, of one of the two churchyard gateways flanking
Jones' St Paul, Covent Garden, of 1631, see Vitruvius Britannicus (ii,
1717, pl 21-2).
