2/69 Walls, gate-piers and gates to the
- walled Park to Dulford House
Walls, gate-piers and gates, formerly to the walled park surround Dulford House,
which was demolished in the 1930s. Late C18. Flemish bond handmade brick walls,
Dulford House was built between 1762-1800 by Charles Coote, the 7th Earl of Montrath.
He was a recluse "with a morbid dread of infectious diseases" (Chalk) and surrounded
the house with a massive walled park of tall brick walls, the bricks probably
maufactured in Dulford. Most of the walls survive although new houses and
conversions have been built within the park. The main gateway into the park is from
the road running along the east side with a pair of massive gate-piers and timber
The walls have shallow brick buttresses and curve inwards on the east side of the
gateway which is flanked by tall square section piers with tall pinnacles, one
retaining an openwork iron ball finial, possibly late C19. A pair of very tall
timber gates with a segmental arch at the top have good ornamental hinges.
