Listing Text

SS 61 SE
1/66 Gate posts and gate approximately
- 40 metres east of Heywood House
Gate posts and gate. Circa 1850. Stone rubble and sandstone posts with cast iron
gates. The posts are square in section with ball caps reset on C20 concrete. The
gate is 2 bays with horizontal rails of circular section. The central rail and
central upright are interrupted by a circle. The rails are braced by semi-circular
bars meeting on this central circle and by shallower segmental arches across whole
gate, one upward, the other downward with cast rosette bosses where they meet. End
styles are carried onto the top rail as ornamental scrolls and the central upright
is carried up with a bifurcated scroll surmounted by a gadrooned vase. It is very
similar to a number in mid-Devon made by the Wrights of Sandford.
