Walls, gate piers and gates. Probably c1700: similar walls shown on a 1720
plan of gardens appear to be part of Beaumont's original design for gardens of
1692. Rubble walls, with sandstone dressings. Central low portion has moulded
copings surmounted by 4 corniced sandstone piers and timber balusters with
moulded top and bottom rails and uprights set diagonally. Gateway at centre,
flanked by rusticated sandstone piers with plinths and cornices, has later
decorative wrought-iron gates with ramped tops and scrolled heads to standards.
Each pier surmounted by stone vase; similar vases at intervals on wall. Small
wrought-iron lattice-patterned gate at East end. See R.C.H.M. p155.
