(South side)
Wall and gate piers of Burton Manor)


Boundary wall, Library and entrance gate piers to Burton Manor
(qv). 1904, incorporating remains of early C19 wall. By Sir
Charles Nicholson for Henry Neville Gladstone. Early C19 wall
of red brick in English garden wall bond on 3-course sandstone
plinth and with flat sandstone coping; early C20 wall of
sandstone rubble with steeply weathered saddleback coping and
ashlar gate piers. Library of rock-faced sandstone with hipped
slate roof.
Early C19 wall is up to 43 brick courses in height. Library:
single-storey 3-bay front on 2-course plinth projects forward
of flanking boundary wall: at right side, single-storey
flat-roofed extension stands in re-entrant with the wall. Bays
of main part articulated by pilaster strips flanking recessed
multi-paned cross windows with stone sills. Left return has
single similar window. Extension has single round-headed light
with cast-iron lattice glazing to front; to right return,
semicircular-headed multi-paned window. Brick dentilled eaves
cornice. Entrance gate piers are square on plan and have
moulded caps and ball finials. On each side of carriageway,
piers are coupled together by stone lintels with boarded
wicket gates beneath. Flanking screen walls, curved on plan,
incorporate similar intermediate piers. The interior of the
library nt inspected.
Early C19 brick walling probably survives from Burton Hall of
1805 which preceded the existing Burton Manor (qv).
