Walls to entrance to Oldway Mansion
Walls. 1870s, contemporary with the building of Oldway Manor
in 1874 to the designs of GS Bridgman for Isaac Singer. Local
red breccia, with some grey limestone toothed capping, some
brick and some concrete balustrading. The walls bound the site
of Oldway Mansion on the Oldway Road side. The walls vary in
height. In front of the exercise yard of the riding pavilion
(qv) they are massively tall with a section of brick above the
red breccia and concrete balustrading. Towards the entrance to
the house from Oldway Road they curve inwards and one original
square section gate pier survives with a pyramidal cap. Beyond
the entrance the walls are lower with toothed capping.
Included for group value with listed items at Oldway Mansion,
Torquay Road, (qv).
