TQ3203NE BRISTOL GATE 577-1/49/76 Gate piers with attached lamp standards and walls

II

Pair of gate piers with lamp standards at the south end of Bristol Gate, on the east and west corners. Mid to late C19. Brick and stone facing to flint rubble core; low walls of red brick. The plan of each pier is that of a rebated square. In elevation each of 4 faces has a moulded stone base, from which rises a fluted Tuscan pilaster. The latter is topped by an impost block supporting an entablature which, like the base, is continuous around the pier. The corners are made from brick. On top of each pier are iron elements which appear to have been lamp standards. East pier is attached to low brick walls which debouches to Eastern Road in a flattened S-curve as it steps down in 3 sections. There is a stone coping along the top of this wall. The stone on each pier is partly worn away on the south and east faces. The pier on the west corner is in poor condition. Not only has the stone worn away on the north and east faces, but the south-east brick corner is almost completely gone, exposing the rubble core. This listing does not apply to the low walls attached to the west pier, which are of no distinction.
