3/58 Gate piers, walls
and privies at
Gate piers, walls and privies (the latter now used for storage). Piers dated
1863. Built for John Eden. Dressed sandstone.
1.5 to 2.0-metre high walls, with low triangular-section coping, enclose
curtilage of Methold Houses. Rounded north-west corner; driveway near north-
east corner. Short serpentine sections to pair of gate piers in west wall.
Tall, square-plan piers have chamfered corners with bar stops and moulded
pyramidal caps; sunk inscribed plaques; METHOLD HOUSES (on north pier);
ERECTED 1863 (on south pier). 4 detached privies regularly spaced on rear
(east) wall. Each privy has 2 boarded doors under flush lintels and a flat-
coped parapet masking a pent roof.
Included for group value. Altered stone sheds and later lean-to additions
on privies are not of special interest.
