ca 1825. Probably designed by Robert Lugar (the demolished lodges matched the style of the house).


Two fine sections of ironwork railings with ironwork gate piers flanking the driveway. Large urn finials surmount round gatepiers with hinges, attached cluster of smaller urn-topped uprights. Matching pair of ironwork gates. Spear railings sweep down with 7 bays to left and right divided by square groups of urn-finial uprights; spear dog-bars. Railings are attached at outer ends to square, castellated stone turrets with boundary walls beyond.

Gates restored (Spring 1987).
