Details

PISHIOBURY DRIVE 1. 5253 (West End) Gate Piers next to No 1 TL 473 137:6/23 II GV 2. C18. 2 tall square stone piers flanking the entrance to the drive. Low moulded base. 7 courses of V-jointed vermiculated rusticated masonry. Smooth dressed frieze below projecting moulded cornice. On top a late C19 large stone ball finial with moulded circular foot set on octagonal block raised from a square bed by concave swept broaches. The facing sides of the piers each have an engaged dressed stone gate post with necking and scrolled top dying into 2nd rusticated course from top. Reconstruction of S pier after an accident in 1974 showed that the pier had a solid brick core, cased in stone. C19 photograph shows the piers each surmounted by a griffin's head facing inward. These were presumably replaced by the present ball finials when the estate changed hands.
