Entrance gates. c.1850. Probably by Blore for the 1st Earl of Ellesmere. Made by Cottam and Hallen of London. Cast and wrought iron with ashlar walls to either side. Double carriage gates flanked by smaller pedestrian gates. The gates are supported by intermediate square piers constructed of iron bars. The gates are of similar construction. All have elaborate scrollwork at top and bottom. The carriage gates rise to a Baroque-type scrolled head and are surmounted by the outline of a cartouche. Bold ashlar piers to either side have recessed panels and moulded caps.

Pierced quadrant walls. The gates won an award when exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Illustrated in The Builder, Dec. 10, 1853.
