8/87 Entrance gateway 15 metres
- north of Wamil Hall, with
attached flanking walls
which return towards Wamil

- II

Gateway, late C16. Probably for Sir Henry Warner (d.1617). About 3 m. wide
and 4m. high; flanking brick walls built or rebuilt C18 and altered C20.
Dressed limestone facade to north face of gateway, with backing piers of gault
and orange brick. Moulded arched gateway with moulded pilasters and
entablature; the cornice and pilaster capitals enriched with egg-and-dart
ornament. Within the pediment is a central achievement, well-carved, probably
of Sir Henry Warner. On either side of the pediment are surmounting stone
balls. The original oak door, counterboarded with multiple nailing, has a
wicket door, and is complete with strap hinges and sliding bolts. On either
side are brick flanking walls about 2.5m. high, rebuilt in part C20, but
retaining moulded stone copings and ball finials at the piers. After about 7
metres, the walling returns towards Wamil Hall, broken by a later gateway on
the east side, but forming originally an inner court against the north side of
Wamil Hall.
