Gates, gateway, railings and 2 lodges. Early C18, probably by Daniel

sandstone with vertical parallel tooling, Welsh slate roofs; cast-iron
railings and gates. Central entrance with carriageway flanked by pedestrian

half columns support open central pediment and large Doric frieze over side
gates, the cornice continuing into pediment; surmounted by 5 large urn
finials, some damaged, the inner three with gadrooning. 2 main central
gates (the northern one lying broken on the ground nearby at the time of

almost filled with decorative patterns, and with base rail with diapers and
paterae, and elaborate scrolling across the top. Side gates: of similar
design to main gates but without decorated base rail and top scrolling, and
with bronze cresting to finial. Railings: low wall supporting railings
which have round bars with decorative finials. Lodges: 1 storey, 1 bay:
Roman Doric Venetian window set within round arch, the sills continued as
band lining through with coping below railings; pediment, with inclined
parapet above terminating in circular gable chimney. Rear elevations the
same. Inner return sides of lodges: 4-panel door in rusticated quoined
surround with raised extended lintel and large tripartite keystone. Moulded
