Listing Text

SJ 75 SW
2/37 Gates, piers, screen and
wall at Hough Gates
(formerly listed as
Gates at Hough Hall).

- II*

Gates, piers, screen and wall. Early C18. Wrought iron, ashlar and
brick. Central double drive gates with wrought iron piers to either
side and overthrow and lateral screens supported on low C20 brick
walls with ashlar coping. The gates have closely spaced square
railings with dog bars set between with arrow heads. The lock rail
supports notched button points. The gates have a basket arched top
mirrored by the stretcher of the overthrow. The piers have C and
S-scrolls and the overthrow includes the Wilbraham arms. The
decoration is made up of waved bars, S, G and C-scrolls and water
leaves. The lateral screens have spear head finials and are divided
by smaller piers with scroll capitals. There are scrolls adjacent the
iron piers of the central gates and the lateral brick piers. The use
of waved bars, flat sided oval and notched button points above the
lock rail and the absence of a lock panel, as well as the elongated
arched top all indicate the work of Robert Bakewell of Derby or his
assistant Benjamin Yates.
