SE 42 NW LEDSTON HALL LANE WF10 7/33 Entrance gates 4th July 1952 and lodges GV I Entrance gate probably late C17, with side lodges probably early C18. Magnesian limestone ashlar. The gateway is a square-headed opening in a rusticated rectangular surround with a cornice broken in the centre by elongated central voussoirs, and a segmental pediment broken in the centre by a pedestal surmounted by a carved coat of arms. The archway contains wrought-iron double gates with scrolled wrought-iron panel above, embodying Sir John Lewis's cypher in the centre. Each side is the pier or pilaster of a former screen, surmounted by a scrolled console, and, abutting these, cubic lodges set diagonally: each of these has an impost band carried round the whole, a round-headed doorway on the inner wall and round-headed window in each of the other sides, all these with glazing bars, moulded architraves, and triple keystones rising to the frieze of a moulded cornice; and plain parapet with restored urns on the corners.
