The half columns are flanked by short lengths of tooled sandstone walling with projecting plinth. The two outer openings of three formed by the columns are filled with wrought iron screens based on round rods, scrolls, spears and leaves. The matching gate is hung from built-up metal piers with zig zag infilling and has a flat overthrow with spears. Gervase Jackson-Stops in Country Life 19 July 1973.
