Retaining wall with arched gateway, gate, and steps. c1845. Rubble, slate steps, wrought-iron gate.

To the right is a rough arched opening with wrought-iron gate with thin bars and dog-bars, to fleur-de-lys or flattened spearheads, opening to a landing on one step, with retaining wall to the right, and with a flight of 10 slate steps rising to the left, behind the retaining wall, and to a further retainer to its right.
