History

Late C19 wrought-iron gates and stone gatepiers, believed to be to the design of David Walker of Liverpool, completed before 1875; accompanying the west gate lodge and related to the west entrance range of Nantclwyd Hall as enlarged by Walker for Tom Naylor-Leyland.

Exterior

A broad gateway in wrought-iron with freestone rusticated piers and plinth walls, in the angle between two roads and constituting the main entrance to the park of Nantclwyd until the 1960s.

The piers of the main gates are tall and slender with a pronounced cornice and a finial ball on a large plinth. At each side of the main gates is a single gate, with outer piers similar to the centre ones but less high. Flanking the gates each side is a curved fixed railing on a plinth wall, with outer piers also of similar design but lower and lacking the ball finials. A further line of low railings defines the south side of the grounds of the gate lodge, with a small gate to the lodge.

Reasons for Listing

A good set of railings and gates with stone piers, of group value with the West Lodge; included amongst buildings associated with an extensive programme of work at Nantclwyd in the late C19 undertaken by Tom Naylor-Leyland.
