Description
Entrance gate to former Mote Park demesne, c. 1800, consisting of a Doric triumphal arch surmounted by a lion with screen walls linking it to a pair of identical lodges.

Appraisal

It has been suggested that this was designed by James Gandon. While this is feasible, certain elements, most notably the head and keystone of the arch, appear to be of a later date and have a provincial character.
