Entrance archway with gates, lodges and flanking wall. Late C18, gates mid
C19. Possibly by James Wyatt. For Margaret and Gilbert Bourchier. Ashlar,
cast-iron railings. Pedimented round-headed archway flanked by lower, single-
storey, 1-bay lodges and recessed wall. Archway: surround breaks forward with
plinth and impost band continuing as cornice to lodges. Archivolt with keystone
head and sunken flowers in spandrels. Corniced pediment with laurel wreath
in typanum. Ridge stack. Gates are ramped with spear-headed finials to bars,
arrow-finials and pendants to dog bars, and circles forming bottom dog-bar and
top rails. Lodges each have one 12-pane sash, 6-panel doors to inner returns,
angle pilasters and a continuous plinth, cornice and blocking course. Low coped
flanking walls have taller plain piers with capstones at each end and support
railings with spear-headed finials. The archway is identical in design and

designs of James Wyatt c1780 (Price and Ruffhead, p78). S Price and G Ruffhead
