GV II

Gate piers linked by concave dwarf wall with stone seat, flanking walls. Gate piers probably early C19, walls c1907 by H.A. Peto. Square limestone ashlar piers with composite capitals, each surmounted by Rooke family crest of a rook and wheatsheaf, linked by concave ashlar dwarf wall and stone seat; the iron gates or grille were removed by Peto. Rubble stone walls with moulded flat coping link gate piers to Casita (q.v.) on right and on left are set with fragments of Italian sculpture. The Rooke family were at Iford in C19, Peto altered the arrangement between the piers as part of his remodelling of the Great Terrace. (E.
