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

Fine early C18 wrought iron gates. Originally at Quenby Hall, Leicestershire, later used as entrance gates at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Paint finishes are actively failing and wrought iron work is delaminating. The gates are located within the boundary of Leicester City Council owned 'Leicester Castle and the Magazine Gateway' Scheduled Monument (NHLE 1012147) but are owned by the County Council. Leicester City Council has commissioned a condition survey to inform future repair proposals. Discussions are on-going between the City Council and County Council about the future of the gates.
