9/44 Golden Gates and Overthrow, screens, and pair of wing lodges

4/6/1952 I

Central pair of gates and adjacent screen railings, early C18, by Robert and John Davies of Croes Foel; side gates and screens, c.1880, by Alfred Waterhouse (maker, Skidmore of Coventry); lodges, c.1880, by Alfred Waterhouse. Gates and screens of wrought iron, painted gold and black; lodges of stone. Pair of central gates, each with quadrant head, hung in round-arched screen between square openwork wrought iron piers. The fine ornamentation, with motifs typical of the Davies Bros. work, is confined to the quadrants of the gates, the screen, the piers and the overthrow. To each side of the gate piers is a fixed screen with a wheel-shaped ornamental upper panel (Davies Bros.). Waterhouse's design of the side gates and wing screens complements the Davies Bros. work. A pair of single storey one room lodges with steep hipped roofs of shaped tiles terminate the composition in early French Renaissance Chateau style: each has a heavy stone sentry-box porch, a corbelled balustrade at eaves and a tall, cone-topped shaped circular chimney. The Davies Bros. gates and screens are of national importance. Ifor Edwards, The Davies Bros. Gatesmiths, Welsh Arts Council, 1977, gives a full description and assessment.
