1/186 Gate posts and gates approximately 140 metres south-east of Wood House GV II*

Gate posts and gates between farm drive and landscaped gardens. 1899-1905 by Thomas Mawson. Granite ashlar posts and wrought iron gates. The gate posts are square in section with chamfered plinths and soffit-moulded flat caps. The double gates are hung on wrought iron piers. They are fall height with double lockbar enriched with scrolls and have dograils of arrowheads. Alternative rails are twisted. Other fleur-de-lys and scroll ornament and ornate central crestwork in the manner of an overthrow. This gateway is part of an extensive landscaping scheme conceived by Mawson to go with the rebuilding of Wood House. Mawson himself considered the whole scheme as one of his major achievements.
