Two park gate lodges, 2 gate piers and walls. Circa 1835. Ashlar

urns terminating in obelisks to kneelers and apexes of gables.
Two-light windows with hoodmoulds to ground floor, single lights to

pier to right intact with dentil cornice and urn-obelisk finial;
original pier to left demolished, only rebuilt stone stump remains.
Curving quadrant walls terminating in square piers creating
