Probably part of work carried out 1860-1868 by G H Stokes (advised by Sir Joseph Paxton) for Sir Edward Page-Turner. Red brick with ashlar dressings, the gates of cast iron. Consists of central double gates flanked by single gates, these supported by 4 piers, and linked to outer piers on road edge by symmetrical lengths of curving wall.

Piers are rusticated with ashlar blocks and have heavily moulded cornices. Those adjoining walls shave heavily moulded ashlar consoles at junction.
