Pair of lodges, gate piers and gates. Lodges 1788 by James Wyatt; gate piers and gates probably early C19; for Jolliffe

columns. Windows, 2 in front, one each side, are blank with glazing missing, cambered heads, cambered head recesses.
Door opening to centre of each portico in moulded architrave, doors missing. Between the lodges a pair of square ashlar
panelled gate piers with moulded cornices and square die-shaped caps; double ornamental cast-iron central gates and
