BOMERE HEATH C.P. ALBRIGHTON SJ 41 NE 6/60 Pair of gate piers approx. - 40 metres to south-east of Albrighton Hall

GV II

Pair of gate piers. Probably late C17. Grey sandstone ashlar. Two square piers, each with moulded plinth, chamfered rustication, moulded cornice, and concave cap with globe finial. Small projection on inside face of each pier. No gates at time of survey (January 1987). The piers are axially placed on the main entrance of Albrighton Hall (q.v.) and were probably part of the former principal approach to the house,although it is possible that they may have been moved to this location at a later date, perhaps in 1885 when the house was enlarged. There are a pair of similar piers (now moved a short distance from their Former location) near the south lodge to the house (neither piers or lodge are included on this list).
