houses
GV II*


Railings, gatepiers and gates. Early C18 and 1849. Gates by
Robert Bakewell and originally from Etwall Hall. They were
re-erected after restoration in 1984. Wrought iron, brick and
stone. Low brick walls with chamfered stone copings, to either
side of gates, surmounted by plain railings with square stiles,
topped by urn finials. Attached at right angles to either end
of the railings are pairs of brick gate piers with moulded stone
cornices. To the centre of the railings are a large pair of
gates set in frame with scrolled panels. Gates very simple with
only arrowhead dograil to base and plain square rails. To the
top of the frame a splendid overthrow with central painted
shield and crest of hawk holding a buckle above, and to either
side scrollwork with leaves and flowers. To either side of the
frame are side panels, also with scrolled overthrows. The gates
were originally made for the Sleigh family of Etwall Hall and
the railings were set up in 1849 by the Trustees of the
Almshouses when the almsmen rioted.
