History

Wern Manor is a small country house remodelled in 1892 by John Douglas architect of Chester. The gates may well date to the earlier house, perhaps built or remodelled by James Brynker in the early C19, but were altered and the timber gates hung by R M Greaves in the late C19, and mechanised so that they could be opened from the house.

Exterior

Three square rubble piers with stepped caps and ball finials, carrying a timber carriageway gate and a flanking pedestrian gate, hung on ironmongery provided by Boulton and Paul of Norwich.
