SE 04 NW KILDWICK GRANGE ROAD (north side)

1/6 Garden wall, gate piers and urns fronting Kildwick Hall ( formerly listed with 10.9.54 Justice Room)

GV II

Wall, gate piers with lions, and 4 urns. Lions and urns possibly late C17 for Hugh Currer, probably reset on wall and piers mid C18 for Haworth Currer or Richard Richardson. Wall of coursed gritstone rubble, piers of ashlar, lions of limestone, urns probably of gritstone. Wall approximately 65 metres long running between the Justice Room (q.v.) and garden pavilion (q.v.), approximately 1.5 metres high across the front of the house, stepping up to over 2 metres high at eastern end. The wall coping is ridged, with a roll moulding and the flat top interrupted by large square blocks as bases for the urns. The urns comprise 2 pairs flanking the gateway; one pair has a narrow stem, gadrooned flattened body and small ball finial, the other pair has similar stem, moulded body with strapwork, cover and ball finial; all considerably restored. Gate piers opposite house entrance rusticated, frontal pilasters, rectangular jambs capped by reversed consoles of acanthus leaf; entablature and cornice moulding similar to Justice Room (q.v.), half pediments rolled at break and finished with a rosette, upon which is mounted an heraldic lion passant, regardant, heavily restored. The wall is illustrated in Whitaker (1805) where the capped urns are shown with swags of flowers below the rim. The gates illustrated there (wooden, with solid panels below and rails above) were still in situ in 1911 (Country Life photograph) The lions are of similar material to the plaque above the front door of the hall (q.v.) which has the arms of Currer and Haworth, and the style is primitive compared to that of the piers.
