GV II

Boundary wall, Library and entrance gate piers to Burton Manor (qv). 1904, incorporating remains of early C19 wall. By Sir Charles Nicholson for Henry Neville Gladstone. Early C19 wall of red brick in English garden wall bond on 3-course sandstone plinth and with flat sandstone coping; early C20 wall of sandstone rubble with steeply weathered saddleback coping and ashlar gate piers. Library of rock-faced sandstone with hipped slate roof. Early C19 wall is up to 43 brick courses in height. Library: single-storey 3-bay front on 2-course plinth projects forward of flanking boundary wall: at right side, single-storey flat-roofed extension stands in re-entrant with the wall. Bays of main part articulated by pilaster strips flanking recessed multi-paned cross windows with stone sills. Left return has single similar window. Extension has single round-headed light with cast-iron lattice glazing to front; to right return, semicircular-headed multi-paned window. Brick dentilled eaves cornice. Entrance gate piers are square on plan and have moulded caps and ball finials. On each side of carriageway, piers are coupled together by stone lintels with boarded wicket gates beneath. Flanking screen walls, curved on plan, incorporate similar intermediate piers. The interior of the library nt inspected. Early C19 brick walling probably survives from Burton Hall of 1805 which preceded the existing Burton Manor (qv).
