GREAT MILTON CHURCH ROAD SP60SW (East side) 5/107 Entrance gates and flanking 18/07/63 walls approx. 70m. SW of Manor House

GV II*

Entrance gates and walls. Late C16/early, C17 and later. Coursed limestone rubble and ashlar. Original entrance gates, now disused, are sited opposite original front door, and have a semi-circular archway under a straight entablature with ogee gable and 3 obelisk finials. The outer face of the arch has a moulded chamfer set with nailhead ornament. The oak tympanum survives above a moulded oak lintel, and is carved with rays and leaf ornament. To right is a small 4-centre arched doorway with recessed spandrels and label. The plank doors are probably replacements. Flanking walls step down either side and return towards original front of house; that on the right stopping short just beyond a 4-centre arched doorway with recessed spandrels and label. (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol VII, p.120; Buildings of England: Oxfordshire, pp.622-23).
