Entrance gates. c.1850. Probably by Blore for the 1st Earl
of Ellesmere. Made by Cottam and Hallen of London. Cast and
wrought iron with ashlar walls to either side. Double
carriage gates flanked by smaller pedestrian gates. The
gates are supported by intermediate square piers constructed
of iron bars. The gates are of similar construction. All
have elaborate scrollwork at top and bottom. The carriage
gates rise to a Baroque-type scrolled head and are
surmounted by the outline of a cartouche. Bold ashlar piers
to either side have recessed panels and moulded caps.
Pierced quadrant walls. The gates won an award when
exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Illustrated in
The Builder, Dec. 10, 1853.
