SJ 75 SW CREWE C.P. CREWE HALL PARK

5/20 Gates, piers and wall at North end of Crewe Hall Drive. GV II

Gates and walls separating the Hall and gardens from the park and farmland. 1878 (on gates). Wrought iron gates, stone gate piers and brick walls. One pair and two single gates between sandstone piers with strapwork decoration. The inner gate piers are surmounted by a griffin and a lion whereas the outer piers have convex "prisms" with strapwork supported on four inverted consoles. The lower sections of the gates consist of lyre like panels based on leaves, spearheads, twists and scrolls. Pairs of central rails are separated by scrolls and the upper sections are based on Jacobean arched panels and pilasters. The top rails, which support the overthrow, have the inscription "Quid retribuam domino" to the centre gates, and the flanking gates have the date. The overthrows are an elaborate arrangement of roundels with shields and emblems, scrolls, spears and leaves. They are surmounted by crowns with grain sheaves and sickles. The gate piers are flanked by a wall of open arcading with springers and keystones. This has piers, with stone dressed sinkings to match the archaing and ogee caps carved to resemble the tile covering of the Hall tower.
