- gate piers approx. 5
metres to south of The
Manor House

GV II

Garden wall, gates and gate piers. Wall dated "IK 1694", gate and extension
of wall of c.1820. Dressed grey sandstone wall and wrought-iron gates with
cast-iron gate piers. Wall approximately 30 metres long and one metre high
with chamfered coping. The section of the wall to the left of the gateway is
probably early C19 and has no coping but has a chamfered top. Central
gateway consisting of pierced square-section piers with fluted plinths and
pyramidal caps and pair of gates with acanthus spearhead railings, dog
bars and scrolled and ogee braces. The walls and gateway form part of a
close group with The Manor House (q.v.). Pevsner quotes the date on the
wall as 1624 but this might refer to another date not noted at time of
Survey (December 1985). B.O.E., p.135.
