Details

HIGH BICKINGTON SS 61 NW 9/63 Gate and gate piers approximately - 60 metres to south-east of Bale's Ash

GV II

Gate and gate piers. Probably mid - to late C19, by Cockeys of Frome. Restored in the late C20. Pair of circular cast-iron gate piers and wrought-iron gate. Plain columnar piers with moulded bases and moulded capitals with globe finials (that on the hanging pier absent at time of survey - January 1988). Each pier with superscribed lettering: "COCKEY. FROME". Six-bar gate with 2 pairs of diagonal braces. The top of the gate is attached to the cap of the hangine pier which itself turns on hidden bearings, and the bottom of the gate slides around the circumference of the base of the pier. Sliding latch on gate with provision for padlock. The gateway marks the entrance to the farmyard at Bale's Ash (q.v.). It is notable for its ingenious hanging and turning mechanism.
