Listing Text

MONKS KIRBY NEWNHAM PADDOX PARK
SP48SE
8/20 Screen, gates and gatepiers
06/10/60 (Formerly listed as screen and
gates at Newnham Paddox Park)
- I

Shown on Ordnance Survey map as Gateway.
Screen, gates and gatepiers. Early/mid C18 with additional gatepiers of c.1873.
Cast and wrought iron. C19 piers of banded rusticated brick with moulded
limestone plinths, cornices and caps. Attributed variously to the Roberts
brothers with side gates by Robert Bakewell, and to the Davies brothers, but
V.C.H. states that they are from a Spanish monastery and were brought here from
Berwick House, Shrewsbury in 1873. Central segmental-headed pair of gates are
mostly plain but with ornamented dog and lock rails. Side panels of scrollwork.
Very elaborate overthrow of scrollwork and acanthus leaves has central shell,
coat of arms and dragons. 4 piers, approximately 5.5 metres high, of square
section have scrollwork and acanthus leaves, attached foliage and flowers, and
solid caps surmounted by square vases of flowers. Large screen panels to left
and right are largely similar to the gates but with a large circular panel of
radiating ornament projecting at the top, and some scrollwork. Scrollwork and
acanthus overthrows have bearded head finials. Lower side gates are in a
different style and may be by a different designer. Semi-circular heads with
ornament, and flanking scrollwork panels. Scrollwork overthrows have openwork
vase crests. Doric piers of bar work have solid caps crowned with openwork urns
on plinths. Scrollwork panels to left and right. C19 piers have short wall
curving down from tall inner pier to lower outer pier.
