SW 62 SE CURY

3/9 Gate-piers and flanking walls 10.7.57 at approx 200m north of Bochym Manor House GV II*

Gate-piers and flanking walls. Probably circa 1699. Dressed serpentine gate-piers and serpentine rubble walls with dressed coping to either side. Tall piers are square-on-plan with plinths projecting at front and rear; torus moulded entablature string; plain ashlar course frieze; inverted chamfer cornice and surmounted by pyramid copings with ball finials. Flanking walls have roll-moulded saddle-back copings. Stile at far right. A particularly fine and complete pair of gate-piers, closely spaced and only wide enough to permit passage of carriages of the time, thereby accentuating their imposing height. Historical information kindly supplied by the present occupier and taken from a history of the Lyle family by Dr John Martin Robinson FS.
