3/9 Gate-piers and flanking walls
10.7.57 at approx 200m north of Bochym
Manor House

Gate-piers and flanking walls. Probably circa 1699. Dressed serpentine gate-piers
and serpentine rubble walls with dressed coping to either side.
Tall piers are square-on-plan with plinths projecting at front and rear; torus
moulded entablature string; plain ashlar course frieze; inverted chamfer cornice and
surmounted by pyramid copings with ball finials. Flanking walls have roll-moulded
saddle-back copings. Stile at far right.
A particularly fine and complete pair of gate-piers, closely spaced and only wide
enough to permit passage of carriages of the time, thereby accentuating their
imposing height.
Historical information kindly supplied by the present occupier and taken from a
history of the Lyle family by Dr John Martin Robinson FS.
