SY 09 SE NEWTON POPPLEFORD VENN OTTERY AND HARPFORD 4/95 Forecourt walls including gates - adjoining to east and approximately 25 metres north of Venn Ottery Barton GV II

Forecourt walls and gates. Late C17-early C18 with some C19 and C20 repatching. Gates are probably circa 1810. English bond brick walls with cast iron gates. Relatively tall walls enclosing large forecourt on its north, south and eastern sides. The south-east corner includes a contemporary pavilion (now part of Garden Cottage (q.v.)) and the gateway is at the northern end of the east side. Here from plain square piers projecting slighly from the main wall and concave quadrant walls curve in to plain brick gate piers which contain double gates. The gates have spear-headed rails, a double lock bar containing circles and the spaces between the rails below filled with diagonal crosses. The farmhouse (q.v.), a pavilion (q.v.) and forecourt walls form a group in a picturesque setting. There are striking similarities here to the arrangement at nearby Elliots Farm (q.v.).
