These C18 railings and entrance gates are all that remain of Hextable House which
was demolished soon after the war. These consist of 2 square red brick piers,
the left are now truncated to a height of about 6 ft, the right are about 8 ft
high and having a moulded stone cornice. Stone band a few inches above ground
level. Central stone step. Between these piers are wrought iron spear railings
to a height of about 7 ft reinforced by intermediate spear railings about 18 ins
in height and a central round-headed cast iron gate with elaborate scrolled
decoration. (The whole is now covered in wisteria). The gate is flanked by piers
with iron finials. To the right is a brick wall about 3 ft in height surmounted
by iron spear railings. There is a round-headed gate and another square brick
pier about 10 ft in height with stone cornice. Included for good C18 ironwork
and for historical interest as the last remaining portion of Hextable House.
