SE65SW TERRY AVENUE 1112-1/2/1064 (West side) 24/06/83 Rowntree Park Memorial Gates (Formerly Listed as: TERRY AVENUE Memorial gates, screens and piers at east side of Rowntree's Park fronting road)

II*

Carriage and pedestrian gates, screen walls, railings and terminal piers forming main gate to Rowntree Park. Early C18; installed at the Terry Avenue entrance in 1954. Screen walls are of brick in stretcher bond with flat stone coping; gates and railings of cast and wrought-iron; terminal piers of Portland stone. Concave curve on plan. Double carriage gates and flanking footgates incorporate scrolled panels and mid rails of arabesques and rinceaux; supporting panel piers and cresting utilise the same motifs. On each side, low screen walls carry square section railings with pointed finials, ramped up to gates. Rectangular terminal piers, approximately 3.0 metres high, with moulded bases and caps, are surmounted by damaged figures of standing cherubs, now headless. HISTORICAL NOTE: gates were acquired from an uncertain source and set up at the entrance to Rowntree Park as a Second World War memorial. The Park itself is a First World War memorial.
