(North east side)

9/43 Gates, Overthrow and
Piers approx. 80 metres
east of Dutch Tea Garden


Pair of Carriage Gates, Overthrow and Piers circa 1870, in classical
revival style. The gates and overthrow are of wrought iron, the piers
ashlar. Each gate has an ornate surround, dogbars and lockrail, with
a decorative centrepiece in the upper panel: that to the left has 3
stags' heads, to the right a Grosvenor sheaf, within symmetrical
patterns of foliated scrollwork. The overthrow is triangular with
foliated scrollwork and a sheaf in the Garter as the central motif.
The square piers, with moulded plinths and caps and a recessed panel
on each side, carry urns as finials.
The gates stand in the wall (not included) between park and garden by
Alfred Waterhouse, but may have been introduced later, possibly by
Lutyens - Pevsner & Hubbard.
