History

Talacre Abbey was built 1824-9 by Thomas Jones, architect, for Sir Edward Mostyn, on the site of an earlier house. Jones also designed a number of estate buildings, including the adjacent St Benedict'sLodge, which is shown on the 1839 Tithe map. The gate piers are contemporary with the lodge and stand at the N end of a former drive across the S end of the park at Talacre Abbey. (The corresponding gate piers and lodge at the SE end of the park are ruinous.)

Exterior

Two monolithic octagonal gate piers of pecked stone, with bell-shaped caps. The gate is replaced. On the S side is a later kissing gate.
