Gate piers at 15 & 17 Mill Lane

Gate piers
Photographed on 26 February 2006

A pair of gate piers dating from the mid- to late seventeenth century survive in the back gardens of the Manor House (15 Mill Lane) and Cromwell’s house (17 Mill Lane).

They are Grade II listed (East pair List Entry No. 1369225; West pair List Entry No. 1047567)

The piers are built of limestone, and have ball finials. They were probably built as the entrance to a walled garden when the two houses were one, probably by Unton Croke (d.1670) or his son. Remains of the walled garden also survive.
