GV II

Gates and gatepiers. c.1935 by Sir Edwin Lutyens. Limestone piers stepped back
towards the top. Moulded capitals with ball finials; wrought-iron gates with
Tudor rose motif and double ironwork top with initials of Lord and Lady
Wimborne. When open they read I.W and A.W. and when closed they combine. North
of the gateway is a short flight of steps descending to the orchard. C. Hussey
notes that the gates were among the last additions to Ashby St. Ledgers Manor
House with the "patterns of the ironwork deriving from Lutyens' Delhi period".
(C.Hussey: Ashby St. Ledgers; Country Life 1951, p.499).
