The Formal Italian garden is probably the work of the late C19 or early C20 (1913 work campaign). The gateway, which is probably contemporary, provides access through the continuous wall separating Vaynol Hall from the farm and service areas of the estate.
A cast iron gate set into a rubble stone boundary wall. Scrolled finials and locking rail, with a simple iron overthrow. This gateway is particularly of interest because of its bell-cage to the top right, the clapper now missing, and was placed here to call the staff in from the gardens and service areas.
Included for group value with the other listed items at Vaynol, illustrating the workings arrangements of a large country house.
