C19. Positioned opposite the front door; tall Ham Hill stone
piers with wide moulded cornices, stepped and swept caps, have
tall pyramidal finials with moulded bases and recessed panels
to each facet. A Ham Hill stone plinth, attached to the right,
north-east corner of The Chantry, curves forward, encloses the
front garden, and attaches to a high wall to the left. On it
are railings which sweep up to the sides, each railing has a
flat acorn-shaped top and the main supports have acorn
finials. The gate is similar, with pointed-arch struts and a
dipped curve to the top. A high rough ashlar limestone wall
encloses the L-shaped garden to the left, south, and rough
ashlar and brick to the rear, west.
The railings are similar to those enclosing the forecourt to
