SJ 63 NE NORTON IN HALES C.P. - SJ 6921 3835

6/123 Archway approx. one metre to south-east of Brand Hall

GV II*

Archway. Circa 1700. Red brick with grey sandstone ashlar dressings. Piers with plinths, chamfered quoins and impost bands to elliptical arch. Open triangular pediment. This is one of a pair of ornamental archways flanking the front of Brand Hall (q.v.). They mark the line of the carriage drive in front of the house and might formerly have formed part of a larger forecourt arrangement. Before the early C19 additions to the house they would have appeared more detached from the main block, to which they might have been physically attached by quadrant link walls. The old list description of the house (1959) states that the arches formerly contained ornamental lion gates. Both gates largely obscured by climbing plants at time of survey (July 1986). B.o.E., pp 78-9.
