Listing Text


7/143 Pair of urns on the
south terrace walk
in the formal garden,
approx. 50m south of
fountain at
Woolley Hall


Pair of urns. Early-mid C19. Carved sandstone. Each has square plinth, moulded
foot surmounted by bell-shaped urn with banded decoration, tulip to base, flower
head to top. Cap has gadrooned sun-ray pattern with central sunken recess.

A plan of 1814 by Watson Pritchet for a lodge and gateway at Woolley Park
illustrates 2 urns on the gatepiers identical with these in the garden (Manuscript
in Brotherton Library, Leeds University). It is possible they were made but
discarded when the full plan of the lodge was not executed and originate from that
