The present Gyrn Castle was built for John Douglas, a Holywell cotton manufacturer, in the period 1817-24, and was an enlargement of an earlier house. The house was subsequently bought by Sir Edward Bates, a Liverpool merchant and ship owner. The boundary wall may be contemporary with the 1817-24 house, but the gateway is clearly later, and was probably built in the third quarter of the C19. It is first shown on the Ordnance Survey of 1871.


A castellated rubble stone wall in 2 facets, from the NW corner of the house to the E side of the main coach house and stable block. A central gateway has been inserted at an angle to the flanking walls, and has a 4-centred arch, the jambs having mainly rock-faced coursed stone. On its E side, at a lower level, is a 2-centred arch at the lower-storey level of the house.
