7/33 Entrance gates
4th July 1952 and lodges

GV I

Entrance gate probably late C17, with side lodges probably early C18.
Magnesian limestone ashlar. The gateway is a square-headed opening in a
rusticated rectangular surround with a cornice broken in the centre by
elongated central voussoirs, and a segmental pediment broken in the centre by
a pedestal surmounted by a carved coat of arms. The archway contains
wrought-iron double gates with scrolled wrought-iron panel above, embodying
Sir John Lewis's cypher in the centre. Each side is the pier or pilaster of
a former screen, surmounted by a scrolled console, and, abutting these, cubic
lodges set diagonally: each of these has an impost band carried round the
whole, a round-headed doorway on the inner wall and round-headed window in
each of the other sides, all these with glazing bars, moulded architraves,
and triple keystones rising to the frieze of a moulded cornice; and plain
parapet with restored urns on the corners.
