6/19 Pair of gate-piers and
stiles immediately north
east of Bosvathick Lodge
10.7.57 (formerly listed as
Entrance gateway Bosvathic
Pair of gate-piers and adjoining stiles at drive entrance to Bosvathick House (qv).
Circa late C17 or early C18 gate-piers; the scrolled brackets either side and lions
may be earlier C17 and the stiles are probably late C19. All granite. Pair of
granite ashlar gate-piers either side of the drive carriageway have plinths, Torus
neck moulding and cyma moulded cornice caps with round ogee finials supporting balls.
There is a short section of wall either side supporting a large granite scroll
bracket; these are probably reused coping terminals. There is a low pedestal at
either end, each supporting a large granite heraldic lion couchant with a flat face.
The lions are probably also reused. They are about one metre in length from head
to tail. Between the lion's pedestals and pier brackets there is a granite stile
on both sides of the gateway. The main carriageway has a late C19 diagonally braced
wooden gate. The gate-piers are probably the same date as the main south front
of Bosvathick House. Alternatively they may not belong here at Bosvathick since
Henderson reports that they are said to have come from Trewardeva House (qv), whose
other gate-piers (pair of gate-piers south east of Trewardreva house qv) are probably
coeval with the 1719 remodelling of Trewardreva House.
