8/146 Garden wall, piers,
gates, and house
1/10/86 attached at Beamish
Hall Gardens
GV II*
Garden wall with gatepiers and gate in east side, gate in south side and bath
house, now house, attached to north-east. Early C18, with C19 alterations.
Wall brick with ashlar dressings; external leaf of west side is coursed
sandstone rubble with plinth and quoins, and brick dressings; stone coping.
Ashlar piers and wrought iron gates. House has ashlar south elevation with
Welsh slate roof. Wall encloses rectangular garden; former heated wall on west
side has 6 blocked low segmental brick flue arches; remainder of wall pilastered
brick; all with flat stone coping. Boarded door under flat stone lintel in
north part of west wall; inserted brick arch in south wall over round-headed
wrought iron gate, dated 1849; 2 tall square piers in east side have chamfered
rustication and wide cornices with urn finials; scroll-topped jambs hold single
gate and flanking matching railings under overthrow of wide band of graduated
scrolls, and finial of scroll and water-leaf patterns, with central cipher of
letter W. Gates and railings have high spearhead dog-bars and intermediate
bars.
House attached has C19 temple-style front to garden of Beamish Hall (q.v.),
with tetrastyle Tuscan pedimented portico; partly-glazed panelled door and
flanking sashes with fine glazing bars. Steps along full width flanked by low
flat-coped walls.
The cipher W seems unlikely to relate to the Wray family for Thomas Wray sold
Beamish Hall in 1671; it possibly refers to King William.
East gates damaged at time of survey, and partly repaired with C20 nuts and
bolts.
