GATES: replacement 2-leaf wrought-iron main gates with single replacement pedestrian gates flanking.
BOUNDARY WALLS: sandstone ashlar with stepped ashlar cope. Dwarf quadrant walls to left and right of gates with long sections of decorative cast-iron railings; to left, the and railings adjoin lodge; solid boundary wall continues to right with intermittent ironwork panels.
RAILINGS: later 19th century gothic cast-iron railings. Flower motifs within square and diamond framework, with multi-foil gothic panels; latticework to lower border; evenly disposed trefoil motifs along upper border.
The fine quality cast-iron railings were imported especially from the continent (different accounts give either France or Belgium as the country of origin) by Mr Shaw as a compliment to the extensive formal gardens which they surrounded. Their value as decorative items in themselves was shown when the Ministry of Defence was refused permission to dismantle them for munitions during World War II.
