The Gothick Archway

(Formerly listed as the Archway)



Lodge and entrance archway. Early C19 by Sir Sitwell Sitwell. Ashlar coal measures sandstone two storey archway, with square angle piers supporting a chamfered pointed arch, rising to a cornice with finials and a central crenellated pediment with moulded merlons, the pediment enclosing an achievement of the Sitwell arms. Flanking the archway are single storey pavilions with two-light Gothic windows, with four centred arched heads beneath hoodmoulds with dropped returns. Panelled corner piers with pinnacles, cornice and crenellated parapet.

The archway contains a good pair of cast iron carriage gates with delicate gothic details. The archway, now ruinous, was formerly the lodge on the Renishaw approach drive.
