5/15 Courtyard walls and gateway
- attached to front of Rialton Manor

Courtyard walls and gateway attached to front of Rialton Manor and enclosing a front
courtyard. C15, with later alterations and some rebuilding. Slatestone rubble with
granite dressings.
The walls enclose a courtyard, extending about 12 metres deep and about 15 metres
wide. In the front range there is a gateway, possibly re-used, and in the left-hand
corner what may have been a window opening, within a recess. At the left side, the
wall is low, in rubble, about 1½ metres high with a rendered coping. The wall is
stepped up to the front range, about 2½ metres high with 4-centred arched granite
doorway into the courtyard; the doorway has recessed spandrels and roll-moulding, the
dressed side facing into the courtyard; probably re-sited. In the left-hand corner
the wall is in squared granite with a ridged stone roof over a small recess with
stone jambs. At the right side, the wall is also lower, with a 4-centred arched
doorway and single window opening, both hollow-chamfered; at the end by the house is
a further 4-centred arched doorway. This wall may originally have been the end wall
of part of the house, and has been rebuilt on the outer side as a C20 range.
Internally, the openings facing into the garage have splayed reveals.
