Gate piers, Preston
Gate piers, Preston
Entrance to Preston Tower (NU1825 : Preston Tower), dating from 1866. Hard to make out from the photo, but the piers have acanthus friezes. They are flanked by long, balustraded quadrant walls. Grade II listed.
I had a very pleasant chat, until the heavens opened, with the man who lived in the lodge, just to the right of shot.
