Gate piers and gates, formerly entrance to Mainsforth Hall (now demolished).
Piers probably early C18, restored C19; gates late C19/early C20. Sandstone

curving in to large pineapple finials. Inner wrought iron panels support

of scrolls. Each panel is further quartered, and filled with scrolls, water
leaves and pierced tendrils, the lower panels with more decoration than the
upper. Side panels in similar style.
