walls
G.V. II
Gatehouse, 2 lodges, stables, coach house, clock tower, walls.
1841 with later C19 addition and minor C20 alterations. Ashlar
and squared coursed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings,
yellow brick, slate roofs. Gatehouse, with stable yard and clock
tower to right, has to either side stone walls forming open
courtyard framed by single attached lodges. The square 2 storey,
3 bay gate tower has semi-circular archway with moulded impost
and architraves with stepped keyblocks and planked double gates.
The projecting angle towers have single rectangular lights to
each storey and moulded string courses. The tops are of helmed
form with pinnacles. Above the archway is a canted oriel with
cross mullioned window having corbelled out base supporting
frieze with blank shields. On the corbel a shield bears the date
1841 and initials MIC. In the oriel window is stained glass
reflecting the chambers use as a private chapel. To the right is
a 4 centred arched planked doorway and 2 light mullioned window
over, with beyond a 2 storey irregular 4 bay L-plan house, with
stepped and coped decorative gables with ball finials to
projecting wing. Attached to the right hand side is a tall wall
with gabled coping, ramped to a central gateway having square
piers, moulded cornices and orbs. Attached to the wall is a
small lodge, balancing a matching lodge opposite which is now
derelict and overgrown. Both lodges have shaped decorative
gables with ball finials and square panels with blank shields to
each gable. To left of the gatehouse is a high wall with 2
rectangular windows, an arched 4 centred doorway and 2 light
mullioned window over. Beyond a semi-circular headed gateway has
moulded strapwork decorated keystone bracket supporting a sheaf
of corn. To either side are slightly advanced 2 storey ranges
with shaped gables, with ball finials, and square plaques, carved
with the Cholmeley griffin. In the stable yard are basket arched
carriage doors, and in the corner a square clock tower with
panelled door to base, and 3 clock faces to the principal sides,
with a parapet on mock machicolations with grotesque carving.
Otherwise buildings are single storey, yellow brick, added to the
original design. Easton Hall, seat of the Cholmeley family, was
a medieval house rebuilt early C19, substantially altered c.1840
and demolished in 1951. It stood on the south side of the
gatehouse.
