GV

II

Gate and gate piers. Early to mid-C19. Painted cast iron. Pair of
square-section cast iron gate piers with pierced side panels, moulded
bases and capitals, and pyramidal caps with globe finials; each pier
has a cast relief of a seated dog at the base and relief of a stag's
head on each face beneath the capital. Single wrought iron gate with
spear-head railings, dograil with spear-head dogbars and
lozenge-pattern braces, and semi-circular brace above with lozenge-pattern
bracing between. The stag's head is the symbol of the Smythe family,
former occupants of Acton Burnell Hall (q.v.), and it is said that the gate
and gate piers have been moved to their present location from else-
where.
