railings, gates, and
6.2.68 ha-ha wall to front
of Acorn Bank house


At the west end, the curved low walls to either side of the gate have
semicircular copings topped by railings with square-section standards. The
large, rusticated gate piers have moulded bases and dentil ornament to cornices;
stepped tops with large urn finials. Wrought-iron double gates have foliate
scrollwork decoration to curved top rail; openwork panel with initials in
foliate frame to centre of each gate. These gates were awarded first prize for
modern ornamental ironwork by the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire in the mid
C20. Only the gate piers, without urns, survive at the east end; a ha-ha wall
closes the south side.
