SW 73 SE CONSTANTINE

6/19 Pair of gate-piers and stiles immediately north east of Bosvathick Lodge 10.7.57 (formerly listed as Entrance gateway Bosvathic Lodge)

GV II

Pair of gate-piers and adjoining stiles at drive entrance to Bosvathick House (qv). Circa late C17 or early C18 gate-piers; the scrolled brackets either side and lions may be earlier C17 and the stiles are probably late C19. All granite. Pair of granite ashlar gate-piers either side of the drive carriageway have plinths, Torus neck moulding and cyma moulded cornice caps with round ogee finials supporting balls. There is a short section of wall either side supporting a large granite scroll bracket; these are probably reused coping terminals. There is a low pedestal at either end, each supporting a large granite heraldic lion couchant with a flat face. The lions are probably also reused. They are about one metre in length from head to tail. Between the lion's pedestals and pier brackets there is a granite stile on both sides of the gateway. The main carriageway has a late C19 diagonally braced wooden gate. The gate-piers are probably the same date as the main south front of Bosvathick House. Alternatively they may not belong here at Bosvathick since Henderson reports that they are said to have come from Trewardeva House (qv), whose other gate-piers (pair of gate-piers south east of Trewardreva house qv) are probably coeval with the 1719 remodelling of Trewardreva House.
