4/180 Entrance gate piers and gates at
approx 150 metres west of
Trelowarren House

Gate piers and gates. Piers dated 1660, circa mid C19 gates. Dressed granite piers
with monolith shafts. Wrought iron gates. Jacobean style piers. Square on plan.
The front (west) inner corners of shaft are hollow chamfered with roll moulded
borders over domed stops. The shafts have rectangular sockets for the original five
loose-barred gate. Pier caps have entablature of roll-moulded architrave, tapered
cavetto frieze (inscribed to front with numberals in relief) and double bevelled
cornice with dome heads between. Over the dome heads are ribbed pyramids with ball
finials with each pyramid diagonally set and carried on a round-headed open cross
vault with ball plinths to the arcade piers. Later pin tail fastenings at the rear
of the piers for gates previous to the present ones. Circa mid C19 cast-iron
spearhead gates with cross diagonal bottom bracing, scrolled lock rails and round-
arched top braces.
The piers originally stood in the front quadrangle of Trelowarren and were resited
during the Richard Rawlinson Vyvian period, circa 1830 to circa 1870.
These are exceptionally fine piers and it is interesting that despite their quality,
the original gate was probably of the loose-barred type.
