Listing Text


577-1/49/76 Gate piers with attached lamp
standards and walls


Pair of gate piers with lamp standards at the south end of
Bristol Gate, on the east and west corners. Mid to late C19.
Brick and stone facing to flint rubble core; low walls of red
brick. The plan of each pier is that of a rebated square. In
elevation each of 4 faces has a moulded stone base, from which
rises a fluted Tuscan pilaster. The latter is topped by an
impost block supporting an entablature which, like the base,
is continuous around the pier. The corners are made from
brick. On top of each pier are iron elements which appear to
have been lamp standards. East pier is attached to low brick
walls which debouches to Eastern Road in a flattened S-curve
as it steps down in 3 sections. There is a stone coping along
the top of this wall. The stone on each pier is partly worn
away on the south and east faces. The pier on the west corner
is in poor condition. Not only has the stone worn away on the
north and east faces, but the south-east brick corner is
almost completely gone, exposing the rubble core. This listing
does not apply to the low walls attached to the west pier,
which are of no distinction.
