SJ 75 SW CREWE C.P. CREWE HALL PARK

5/20 Gates, piers and wall at
North end of Crewe Hall
Drive.

GV II

Gates and walls separating the Hall and gardens from the park and
farmland. 1878 (on gates). Wrought iron gates, stone gate piers and
brick walls. One pair and two single gates between sandstone piers
with strapwork decoration. The inner gate piers are surmounted by a
griffin and a lion whereas the outer piers have convex "prisms" with
strapwork supported on four inverted consoles. The lower sections of
the gates consist of lyre like panels based on leaves, spearheads,
twists and scrolls. Pairs of central rails are separated by scrolls
and the upper sections are based on Jacobean arched panels and
pilasters. The top rails, which support the overthrow, have the
inscription "Quid retribuam domino" to the centre gates, and the
flanking gates have the date. The overthrows are an elaborate
arrangement of roundels with shields and emblems, scrolls, spears and
leaves. They are surmounted by crowns with grain sheaves and sickles.
The gate piers are flanked by a wall of open arcading with springers
and keystones. This has piers, with stone dressed sinkings to match
the archaing and ogee caps carved to resemble the tile covering of
the Hall tower.
