4/174 Front garden walls and gateway
22.2.67 adjoining east of West Week
Front garden walls and gatehouse. Gateway is dated 1656 and most of the walls are
probably contemporary although the south side is probably C19. Gateway is granite
ashlar, the walls are granite stone rubble, the original parts with granite ashlar
Description: the gateway has an embattled parapet with moulded coping. The low
ellipitical arch has a moulded surround and spandrels are carved with fleur-de-lys.
This is recessed in a flat-topped arch with hoodmould over and the date 1656 is
carved onto the labels. Above this is a plaque carved with the Battishill arms.
The plank door is a C20 rebuild but appears to reuse some of the original
ferramenta. The gateway is in the north side of the enclosure in front (east) of
the farmhouse. It is flanked by a high stone rubble wall with granite ashlar coping
(keel-shaped in section). The original wall returns along the east side but the
south side is C19 and does not have the ashlar coping.
This is an attractive and unusual feature associated with the important West Week
