5/40 Gate piers within
Yew Court grounds,
10 metres to west of

- II

Pair of gate piers. c1742. Dressed sandstone. Circular on plan,
approximately 2 metres in diameter. Half-glazed doors to garden side,
with decorative iron glazing bars. Heavy stone lintels. 2 small oval
openings, originally unglazed, to street side of each pier. Projecting
moulded cornice below the domed tops which were apparently rebuilt in
C19. There is a corresponding projecting stone band inside each pier,
at the base of the concave roof. The piers were probably erected in
1742 when Yew Court was built on the site of an earlier building,
thought to be of ecclesiastical origins. They were depicted-in
2 paintings by John Atkinson Grimshaw in 1877, now held in the Leeds
City Art Gallery.
