LEIGH

4/115 Gateways attached to
north east and south
east corners of Leigh
House

GV II

Pair of gatepiers, with gates and link walling. The north east gateway probably
C18, the south east a copy dated 1921. Ham stone ashlar pillars, with Portland
stone dressings to north east piers; wrought-iron gates to south east piers only.
North east piers square on plan, with moulded plinth, rusticated joints and cornice
caps; having steps, necks and ball finials; to inner faces are a pair of attached
Ionic columns in Portland stone; south east gateway similar, but omitting a small
band of dentilling in the cap moulding; wrought-iron gates in centre, highly
decorated and featuring the initials 'DFG' and '1921' in panels; matching flanking
railings on side walls: both gateways linked to Leigh House (qv) with short lengths
of rubble walling with thin ashlar copings, about 2.5 metres high with upsweeps
against house; the whole adding to the setting of the house.
