BRUERN SP 22 SE 7/6 Gatepiers and gates approx 5Om NW of NW corner of N service range of Bruern Abbey

GV II

Gatepiers and gates. Probably C19, possibly incorporating medieval fragments. Limestone ashlar. Square section with projecting base, coping and ball finials; each pier with apparently medieval shield reset in slight recess to centre. Short sections of ramped wall attached to each pier incorporate what may be reused fragments of medieval window tracery. Piers are linked by C19 wrought iron gates with decorated overthrow. A Cistercian abbey was founded at Bruern in 1146 but has left me traces above ground (q.v. under Bruern Abbey and Red Brick Cottage). Included for group value. (2443)
