Listing Text


3/117 Gate posts, gates and adjoining
1l.11.52 railings approximately 100 metres
east of Rockbeare Manor

Gate posts, gates and railings. Circa 1820. Red brick piers with sandstone ashlar
bases and caps, wrought iron railings and gates. The gates are set in a recess as
the railings curve in to small brick piers. From here quadrant rails curve to the
taller gate piers. Both piers are square in section and made of brick with moulded
bases and soffit-moulded caps. Each is surmounted by a carved stone lion; those on
the gate piers sejant and those on the outer piers couchant. The railings have
plain spear heads. The double gates have outer stiles with vase caps. The top rail
of each curves down to create a continuous curve overall. The upper rails are
widely spaced with twisted spikes between. The double lockrail is enriched only with
twisted spikes. The lower section has simple geometric panels with twisted spikes.
