6/22 Gate piers to Dunsland House on
- Brandis Corner - Holemoor Road
Gate piers to the now demolished Dunsland House. Later C17. Stone ashlar used in
decreasing sizes towards the top. Projecting cornice with shaped neck supporting
large ball finials.
Dunsland was a Domesday manor and passed to the Arscotts in 1522 and onto the
Bickfords in 1634 who held it in 1817 when it passed to the Cohams and subsequently
the Dickinsons. It was rescued by the architect Philip Tilden and became the
property of the National Trust who restored it only for it to be damaged by fire and
demolished in 1967. These gate piers probably date from the late C17 remodelling of
the Tudor house.
