Garden Walls, Pergola and
Gatepiers to Raenstor Close

Garden walls, pergola and gatepiers. 1911 by H Ibberson. Gritstone rubble, red
brick and coursed squared gritstone with gritstone dressings. Irregular plan of
walls with pair of walls either side of driveway to north of house, running west-
east ending in semi-circular pair of walls to south with central gates. Attached
just to west of this, a pergola runs south towards the house, connecting about half
way to house with another wall running at right angles to east with central gate
piers. Pair of low gritstone gatepiers with banded rustication set in limestone
rubble wall to north of drive. Similar pier to west where wall changes direction.
Opposite, a tall stepped gritstone rubble wall, lined to other side in red brick,
with large gritstone piers to east of every level, each with narrow semi-circular
headed niche with elongated raised keystone. Similar niches to either side of curving
entrance walls which have panels of stylised relief carving of foliage and beasts
between plain pilasters, elaborate iron gates to centre. To west, a recessed section
of wall with a pair of adjoining semi-circular headed arches, a figure of Orpheus
carved in relief to the central pillar, giving a view through to the pergola avenue of
square gritstone piers with intermediate semi-circular headed archways with
elongated keystones. Attached to east about half way to house, a wall of red brick
with gritstone base, bands and square piers to centre and middle which support timber
beams. Central piers have moulded cornices. Included for group value only.
