4/126 Gate piers, wing walls
and bridge over moat to
the Old Hall

GV II

Gate piers, wing walls and bridge: C17; Ashlar buff sandstone. Short
tall wing walls with triangular coping flank gate piers, a squashed
T-shape in plan, with ovolo mouldings on each edge. These have a
weathered capstone and added cubic finials with diamond shaped panels.
C20 wrought iron gate opens onto bridge with low parapets over a
recessed segmental arch. Flagged walkway. Parapet turns and becomes
revetment wall to moat and joins the house.

The earliest hall of late C16 was reached by a drawbridge probably
replaced by these structures c.1660 when hall extended.
