Gates, gatepiers and attached screens approx 600m SE of south front of Drayton House, Drayton Road, Lowick - East Northamptonshire

Early C18 gates, gate piers and screens for the Duchess of Norfolk. Ironwork had steadily deteriorated since circa 1900. The Estate took preventative action in circa 1970 by removing and storing the ironwork panels. By 2013, stone piers had suffered as a result of the expansion of internal ironwork and external ironwork had deteriorated. Historic England grant-aided a small repair development project in 2013-14 and Natural England funded repairs and reinstatement of the stone and ironwork.
