Entrance gates and gatepiers. Early C18, reputedly by Robert Bakewell. Stone and
iron, Pair of square gate piers, approximately 12 feet high and rusticated to all
sides with moulded cornice and shallow pyramidal coping stone over. To north and
south sides of each pier, a plain pilaster with scrolled top, the two central ones
taking the fixings for the gates. Fine pair of gates, each with segmental curve up to
centre and made up of plain square sectioned rails, tied by band decorated with little
knobbed and scrolled finials about a third of the way up, also with an ornate cornice
above. To the base is a dograil of arrowheads. The cornice comprises a frieze of
strapwork with wavy bands to centre. This pattern is continued in narrow separate
panels at the sides on which the gates are hung. Both gates are surmounted by
elaborate scrolled overmantles with fleur de lys type finials.
