History

These late-medieval style pinnacles are said to have come from Wrexham parish church. They were probably placed in the garden in the late C19 or early C20.

Exterior

Gothic crocketed pinnacles of stone with square section stone bases set on stone plinths. There are crudely carved human heads at the angles between canopies. The faces of the bases and canopies which originally faced outwards have weathered cusping and panelling. The finials are missing.

Reasons for Listing

Included for their special interest as Gothic pinnacles incorporated into the formal garden and for group value with other listed garden structures at Erddig.
