Gate posts. Dated 1714. Tall granite ashlar gateposts. There are three. Looking
from the forecourt they define a pedestrian walkway to left and a carriageway to
right. All the gate posts are monolithic posts, square in section, with soffit-
moulded caps and ball finials. All the posts are inscribed on the forcourt side;
the left one with the initials of William Oxenham, the centre one with his arms and
the right one with the date 1714. All have curved bracket-like decorative incisions
below.
