Details

HOUGH C.P. (Off) NEWCASTLE ROAD SJ 75 SW 2/37 Gates, piers, screen and wall at Hough Gates (formerly listed as Gates at Hough Hall). 12.1.67

- II*

Gates, piers, screen and wall. Early C18. Wrought iron, ashlar and brick. Central double drive gates with wrought iron piers to either side and overthrow and lateral screens supported on low C20 brick walls with ashlar coping. The gates have closely spaced square railings with dog bars set between with arrow heads. The lock rail supports notched button points. The gates have a basket arched top mirrored by the stretcher of the overthrow. The piers have C and S-scrolls and the overthrow includes the Wilbraham arms. The decoration is made up of waved bars, S, G and C-scrolls and water leaves. The lateral screens have spear head finials and are divided by smaller piers with scroll capitals. There are scrolls adjacent the iron piers of the central gates and the lateral brick piers. The use of waved bars, flat sided oval and notched button points above the lock rail and the absence of a lock panel, as well as the elongated arched top all indicate the work of Robert Bakewell of Derby or his assistant Benjamin Yates.
