Listing Text

901-1/0/10122 ASHLEY COURT ROAD
02-AUG-02 Ashley Hill
Two Pillars


Pair of gate piers to the lost house of Ashley Court. Early to mid-18th century. Bath Stone, mason unknown. Tall piers, c.6 m. high, with rusticated plinths, smooth ashlar upper section with cap. Later, Victorian, additions comprise the incised inscription of ASHLEY COURT, and the cartouche-bearing lions placed on top. The rears of the piers have arched semi-circular recesses.
HISTORY: these gate piers relate to a lost house, owned by the Hooke family in the mid-18th century. The site of the house was redeveloped with suburban housing in the mid-19th century, leaving these extremely large piers as relics of the former elaborate garden layout of this house.
