953-0/2/10026 Two pairs of Gate-piers and
Railings N. Church of St
Mary and All Saints
Drive gate-piers and attached railings and gates. Early C 18, possibly 1707-10 by William Smith of Warwick for the First Lord Gower; and circa mid C 19 for the Duke of Sutherland. Two pairs of gate-pier with railings and foot-gates between. The larger early C 18 ashlar piers have large moulded caps and ball finials. The circa mid C19 cast-iron inner piers have panelled sides, dentilled cornices and small ball finials, one of the balls is missing. The iron railings between the inner and outer piers have scroll decoration and foot-gates. The stone outer piers are probably not in situ, but represent one of the last vestiges of William Smith's 1707-10 house at Trentham. The cast-iron piers were made by MacFarlane of Glasgow.
