SK 4379
Entrance gatepiers and
attached boundary wall
to Eckington Rectory
Gatepiers and boundary walls. Late C18. Ashlar coal measures
sandstone gatepiers each rising from a chamfered plinth base,
square in plan, with boldly projecting cornice supporting the
fluted pedestal of a substantial ball finial. Attached to
either side of the entrance are substantial coursed masonry
boundary walls with half-round copings, which define the curved
boundary of Church Street. To the south the walls extends
45 metres and terminates at a small gateway with plain low
gatepiers. To the east the walls extends 15 metres at gatepier
cornice height, the portion immediately adjacent to the pier
with a blocked quoined doorway. The wall then steps outwards
and continues until it reaches Rectory Cottage, where it is
pierced by a quoined door opening to the building.
