CRANWELL AND CRANWELL AVENUE TF 04 NW and BYARD'S LEAP (north side) SK 94 NE 6/18 and 7/18 Gates and Gate Lodges to College Hall at RAF Cranwell GV II Gates, gate lodges, gate piers and railings. 1933. Designed by Sir J M West. Red brick with Portland stone dressings, and iron gates and railings. Central pair of gates, segment headed, with the RAF insignia and ornate iron overthrow. Flanked by a pair of square brick piers, with ashlar bases and moulded tops, surmounted by hexagonal lamps. Either side are single iron gates, and then single gate lodges. Each lodge is single storey, with pilaster strips at the corners with ashlar bases and linked by an ashlar plinth, and moulded ashlar capitals linked by an ashlar moulded band, with above an ashlar moulded cornice. The south fronts have single glazing bar sashes with flat brick heads, the inner east and west fronts have single half glazed doors, and above circular panels dated 1933 and above again open ashlar pediments. Beyond again are curved sections of railings which terminate at square brick piers, with ashlar bases and moulded tops, surmounted by hexagonal lamps. The railings then continue approximately 100 metres to east and west, finally terminating in square brick piers, with ashlar bases and moulded tops, surmounted by hexagonal lamps. At the eastern end the railings continue for 5 metres to the north and are termi- nated by a similar, shorter brick pier. Close to the east and west piers are sets of false gates, which bear plaques inscribed "This and the western avenue of lime trees were presented by the Right Honourable, Sir Samuel Hoare. Secretary of State for Air. 1922-24 and 24-29".
