to south-east of
Whelmstone Barton


Gateway and garden walls. Gateway is early C17, cob walls variously C17, C18 and
C19. Gateway of volcanic ashlar with some of coping replaced by C20 concrete.
Walls of plastered or exposed cob on rubble footings, most with pantile copings
From the front south-east of Whelmstone Barton (q.v.) cob walls enclose an
irregularly-shaped front garden, sometimes using walls of standing agricultural
buildings, sometimes left from demolished agricultural buildings. The south-east
side includes remains of a 3-seater C19 privy. The south-west side includes an
unusually grand early C17 stone gateway built in the same style and at the same
style as the porch of the main house. It comprises a large round-headed arch with
ogee-moulded surround and moulded hood. Above the arch is a niche with 3-centred
arch head, a projecting soffit-moulded sill and a hoodmould. The gabled top has
soffit-moulded coping and there is a ball finial at the apex. The arch is flanked
by buttresses. Arch now contains wrought iron gates of circa 1950.
