Iron Gates in Garden at Rear of Skeffington House, the Newarke - Leicester, City of (UA)

Fine early C18 wrought iron gates. Originally at Quincy Hall, Leicestershire, later used as entrance gates at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Suffering slow decay for a number of years; the painted finish has delaminated leaving the wrought iron exposed, which is now suffering decay. This structure is located within the boundary of 'Leicester Castle and the Magazine Gateway' Scheduled Monument (NHLE 1012147). Leicester City Council has commissioned a condition survey to inform repair proposals, due to commence in 2018.
