10/124 Waddington Hospital Gateway
(formerly listed as
The Entrance Gate to the
grounds of the Widows' Hospital)

Gateway, assumed to be 1700 (Pevsner), but probably mid-to-late C18th.
Sandstone ashlar. A moulded open pediment is supported on projecting
quoins. Placed centrally is a doorway with chamfered rustication to
the jambs and a flat lintel incised with false voussoirs and with a
projecting false keystone. Above is a plaque with bolection moulded
border: 'This Hospital was built and endow'd in the year 1700 by Robert
Parker of Marley Hall in the County of York Second Son of Edward Parker
of Browsholme Esq. for the Reception of poor Widows, To be chosen
According to the Deed of Endowment'. The Hospital itself was rebuilt
in the late Cl9th. Buck's drawing of c.1720 shows a gateway with
segmental arch and ball finial and records an inscription in latin over
the gates. Samuel Buck's Yorkshire Sketchbook, reproduced in facsimile,
Wakefield, 1979.
